As a reminder, Birkdale station has made the semi-final thanks to the work it has done with local volunteer groups Birkdale Civic Society and The Station Master’s House.

The two groups, along with Merseyrail, have created a community library with 5000+ books including many large print. The Station Master’s House has three meetings rooms all with internet connected TVs and ethernet ports, and Wi-Fi connectivity throughout. One of the meeting rooms is a computer suite with six high spec PCs free to use for members (and membership is free).
