A number of initiatives were implemented to benefit the local residents and children including;
STEM workshops with Abbey Primary School
Partnering with local Abbey Primary School, STEM ambassadors from Story delivered two Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths workshops, teaching Primary 5 about safety at train stations and civil engineering.

Story and Network Rail sponsored the community event in 2018 and 2019. The project team ran safety competitions with prizes and provided a donation to support free water at event.
Rail safety poster competition
Story and Network Rail held a rail safety competition with Abbey primary school Primary 5 class, with winning designs going on display at station permanently. The three winners, Evie, Amber and Ebonii were also invited to help the project team officially open the Station’s new step-free access.
