A summer thunderstorm did not get in the way of the paintwork being completed over the weekend of June 27/28 highlighting Cricklewood and its station.

It is the second project brought forward by NorthWestTwo Residents’ Association (NW2RA) which won funding from Govia Thameslink Railway’s Passenger Benefit Fund.

NW2RA secretary Marie Hancock said: “The concerted effort has been welcomed locally in a place trisected by three local authorities. The new signage is a marker for the station and town centre and puts Cricklewood on the map.”

Just before lockdown the station platform was lit up with a mural celebrating the area’s rich aviation history.
