Christmas has arrived at Flimby!

The children at Flimby Primary School have designed a new Christmas banner that will be displayed at Flimby railway station over the festive period alongside some fresh seasonal wreaths. 

Here are some of the children who had their drawings chosen to brighten up the station. This years theme is Christmas cards which makes all the designs stand out. 

A special thank you to Northern for funding this wonderful festive banner.


Charlie, Y6 pupil said “I chose to do Santa as he is known for Christmas. The banner is really good and will make the station look festive.” 

Tanya Peers, Headteacher is delighted with the look of the banner. “Since our adoption of Flimby Railway Station in 2019 we have worked together with Community Rail on different initiatives and had the opportunity to take our children along the west coast on the train. It has now become a tradition for us to display a new Christmas banner every year wishing all those that travel by train a Merry Christmas. This design is colourful, vibrant and festive.” 


Warren Birch, Community Rail Partnerships Officer said “It’s always a pleasure to help judge the wonderful artwork created by the pupils of Flimby Primary School, the banner brings a festive cheer to the railway station for all to enjoy.”
