Members of Alderley Edge Station Volunteer Group have certainly had a mixed week.
Firstly they are delighted when a new defibrillator with 24/7 access has been installed on the Manchester bound platform at the station.
Group Chair, Kelvin Briggs said " This has been something we have been pressing Northern Trains Ltd to install for some time. To now see the cabinet installed is brilliant."
However, on the down side there has been some vandalism at the station which has been reported to both Cheshire Police and British Transport Police.
Kelvin said "We have had a sad two nights of vandalism at the station with the destruction of one of our artworks, defaced beyond repair with what appears to be a knife.
"Planters were upturned and glass panels broken in a shelter. So we needed a morale boost and this is great for the village community. Whilst there are numerous defibrillators in the village, I'm not aware of any with 24/ 7 public access."
On a much more positive note, Alderley Edge Station Volunteer Group won a "Highly Commended" award at the "Cheshire Best Kept Stations Awards' event on Friday, 1st April, for some of the artworks which they have installed to brighten up the station.
Kelvin added "We won't be beaten by the vandals and are working with the Police to identify the culprits. We are raising funds to replace the artwork as soon as possible and started a 'Just Giving" appeal to raise £500. If anyone would like to support us, please go online to donate.
