Winner - Market Rasen Station Community Project

The completed refurbishment of Market Rasen Station has allowed local people to visit this much loved building and see it brought back into everyday use. It holds a strong memory for many and by bringing it back from the brink, has raised the collective spirit of everybody in town.

To see it in a derelict stage was depressing and upsetting, especially for people waiting for trains. Now people are proud of their station.

The restoration of the building involved many people from the local community and without hardworking volunteers driving the project forward, it would never have happened. It was officially opened by The Princess Royal in December 2018 after four years of planning and hard work.
