Here are links to forum threads on those projects already discussed on the Coffee Shop. Very brief summaries of the other - please quote / start separate threads (and I will come back and edit in links) to discuss your project.

Congratulations to ...

Bodmin General Platform 2: £54,000 - see ((here))
New platform at Bodmin General heritage station to enable additional trains to operate to Bodmin Parkway.

North Cornwall Railway Heritage Play Areas: £35,057
Breathe new life into a play area while promoting the heritage of Camelford Station.

Saltash Station Refurbishment Project: £40,000 - see ((here))
The former station building had laid in a near derelict state for a number of years. With financial support from GWR, Cornwall Council, and the Railway Heritage Trust, they are well on the way to securing the buildings future and refurbishment.

St Ives Station Pedestrian Signage and Way Marking: £5,000
This project will provide improved signage and way marking to encourage pedestrians to use a safer and more accessible route into the town.

The Coffee Shop is straight ... all the others are crooked  Grin Grin. The text edit window is a fixed width font but then it renders variable width.  I could offer suggestions on fixing it, but as posted it is admiraby fit for purpose.

The Coffee Shop award is of massive significance far and above the amount of money involved - as Chris says, it is such a confirmation / vindication of the forum, what it does, and how we are now going forward.
