Business as usual at Hadlow Road Station

Whilst Cheshire West & Chester Council are renting out the Station Master’s House for a commercial café at Hadlow Road Station, it is business as usual for the community pop-up café provided by Friends of Hadlow Road Station (FHRS) volunteers. The FHRS café will continue to be open every other Sunday in the summer months through volunteers who provide their time free of charge. All profits from FHRS’ café are used to enhance the local environment at the station.

The commercial café that will be operated from the Station Master’s House is totally independent from the FHRS café. Our committee members are exploring how competition between the two cafés can be minimised.

In the meantime, we hope that our customers will continue to support us.  Opening dates in July and August 2017 are 16th & 30th July and 13th & 27th Aug; from 10:30 to 13:30.

We look forward to seeing new and repeat customers taking advantage of our tasty offerings on these dates whilst taking in the 1950’s ambience of Hadlow Road Station!

K6 Telephone Kiosk

The K6 telephone kiosk that has stood on the platform of Hadlow Road Station for many years has now been removed and transported to Norfolk for a full refurbishment at a cost of over £4,500. This money was raised by Friends of Hadlow Road Station (FHRS) through various successful grant applications over the last 2 years. The restoration work will be undertaken over the next couple of months and the K6 telephone kiosk will be returned to Hadlow Road Station in a pristine condition and put back in the same location.
