Transformation of Goostrey Station features in local history exhibition

Friends of Goostrey Station (FoGS) were proud to talk about the rejuvenation of their station building at a local history exhibition in September.

As part of the Goosfest Arts and Crafts Weekend, Goostrey Parish Council organised the exhibition about transport in Goostrey from 1800 to the present day, from tractors and trains to bicycles and buses.

Alongside a photographic exhibition showing the development of the station over the past two centuries, members of FoGS also showcased the wide-ranging present-day activities at the station. These included GIS maps, demonstrating how the group record improvement in biodiversity in the station garden.

Artist Debbie Goldsmith also displayed some of her paintings, as well as a selection of plaques made by local families as part of Goostrey Art Studio’s Coronation celebrations. The three Community Rail Awards trophies showed how the group’s achievements are recognised and celebrated nationwide.
