Sandwell College has been shortlisted for two 2017 Community Rail Awards for its project in partnership with London Midland, Network Rail and Transport for West Midlands.
The arts students’ Smethwick Going Forward ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ mural at Rolfe Street Station is in the running to win the Community Art Schemes – Permanent Projects award category. The station regeneration project, also worked on by college construction students, has been shortlisted for the Involving Diverse Groups award.
The awards, which are now in their 13th year, recognise the important but often unsung work carried out by community rail partnerships and station adoption groups, amongst others, who provide a welcome social and economic contribution, with their activities, to their communities.
The winners will be revealed at the awards gala dinner and presentation evening held by ACoRP, at The Roundhouse in Derby on Thursday 5 October 2017.
