Cricklewood Station has been shortlisted for an award thanks to the work of its local town team.
The group of 30-plus volunteers have transformed the land surrounding the station into a beautiful green area, supported by new screening, photo collages and a new personalised clock.
Their work also includes the installation of an artwork spelling out ‘Cricklewood’ made from reclaimed scaffolding boards.
The station, which is managed by Thameslink, is in the running of the “It’s Your Station” category at the Association of Community Rail (ACORP) Awards.
James Gillett, station manager, said: “The work of the volunteers has been truly fantastic and I am so pleased they have been recognised.
