Ropley Waiting Shelter wins Railway Heritage Trust’s ‘Stagecoach Volunteer’s Award’

Watercess Line Ropley Up waiting room 9th July 2015The Watercress Line announced yesterday that their fantastic new Ropley Waiting Shelter has won the Railway Heritage Trust’s ‘Stagecoach Volunteer’s Award’ in London!

The shelter was officially opened earlier in the year by Tim Shoveller, Managing Director of South West Trains and volunteer on the railway. It uses decorative cast iron columns and arches from the old Ringwood station which closed in 1967 and the wooden station clock came from Aldershot station after being generously donated by South West Trains.  The building is constructed and painted in a sympathetic manner and looks as if it has always been there!

Congratulations to Building Manager Mark Walden, Architect Adrian Crees, Project Manager John Larke and all of the volunteers who built it.
