Best stations and volunteers are winners at National Express
National Express East Anglia (NXEA) held their 2009 Station Adopters Awards at Norwich City Football Club on 23 October. Representatives of the community from across East Anglia attended the ceremony which was hosted by Andrew Goodrum, Customer Service Director for National Express East Anglia.
NXEA has encouraged and supported volunteers from the local communities throughout East Anglia who have adopted their local station, helping to look after the gardens and to improve the environment and community engagement at stations. The Station Adopter scheme has been operating successfully since 2003. The winners of this year’s awards are:
- Best Medium Station: Broxbourne, Hertfordshire. Highly commended: March, Saxmundham, Wymondham, Woodbridge
- Best Small Station: Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex. Highly commended: Brimsdown, Cantley, Sudbury
- Best Personal Contribution: Mike Warner, Reedham Station, Norfolk
- Most Improved Station: March, Cambridgeshire
- Best Staffed Station: Witham, Essex. Runners-up: Alresford, Brimsdown
- Best Station Adopter Group: West Runton, Norfolk. Runners-up: Cantley, Sheringham
The winners received garden vouchers and certificates, and Witham was presented with the Cup as Best Staffed Station.
Andrew Goodrum, Customer Service Director for National Express East Anglia said: “The judges had a very difficult decision to make as the various categories were closely contested. I should like to thank all the community volunteers at our 79 stations which are adopted across our network, for their dedication and commitment in helping to provide a welcoming environment for our customers and station visitors.”
