Spring was definitely in the air today with some warm sunshine for the workers and visitors to enjoy. We were delighted to have been presented with a new bench generously provided by Blandford & District Lions, and brought up to the station today by Veronica, Nigel and Tony. This replaces the bench sadly vandalised last year and which had been originally donated by a local resident, Roy Guscott. Roy, now in his 80’s, is a frequent visitor to the station with his dog but finds any great distance a bit of a struggle, so he kindly provided the bench to give a nice resting place on his daily walks. Blandford & District Lions were keen to help replace the bench, and the concrete base to which it is firmly fixed was provided by the Spetisbury Station Project team. For more information about the Lions, please email email@example.com or call 0845 8332742.
There are now five local ladies and gentleman who have adopted flower beds at the station, and they are doing a marvellous job in helping make the site look its best for all visitors. If you are interested in helping out, please call Moira on 0776 1383563
