Alderley Edge Station Volunteer Group have also raised over £590 via a 'Just Giving" appeal in just 3 days to raise funds to replace an artwork defaced beyond repair by vandals at the station last week.

Group Chair, Kelvin Briggs said "We were overwhelmed by local residents generosity and positive response. Not only did our on-line appeal exceed our expectations, but we also had further donations to us from local business folk who appreciate what we do at the station. The artist Eamonn Murphy and the manufacturer and installer of the digital print, The Sign Bridge Company, gave us some valuable help on the final cost, Big thanks to everyone."

"We have been able to replace the artwork and add another new work on the platform. It's an iconic view of the Edge! We now have four works on the platform for the enjoyment of travellers and visitors to the station. We managed to recycle a portion of the damaged works to make a small piece we plan to erect soon"
