Despite the warm sunny weather, not many visitors made it up to the station today – word had obviously spread that our tea and cake lady was not about so refreshments were not available! Undaunted by this lack of tea and home-made cake, other members carried on the job of clearing the overgrowth from the embankment behind the ‘up’ platform. This will really open up the station site and in time should look good with a carpet of grass, ivy and wild flowers. As mentioned previously, the bushes at the top of the embankment will be trimmed to form an attractive hedge, similar to that created behind the ‘down’ platform, which will also encourage wildlife. Gaps in the hedge will be filled either with new plantings or fencing. The colourful flowers that have been planted in the borders by our green-fingered volunteers really looked at their best in the fine spring weather.
Don’t forget we are always on the look out for new supporters or members, further details can be found on our membership page.
