How does the (station) garden grow? Find out and meet new friends!

A really friendly team of volunteers from our local community – and further afield  – make our village community railway station a  welcoming and an attractive place for residents and visitors.

Just look at our station and surrounding area and approaches – makes the village look the nice friendly place it is.

All Welcome

We have just come the end of a hectic three weeks – preparing for the judging of the 2011 Neighbourhood Award.

We not only include the village railway station, but the local churches, inn,village green and residents.

We had two teams of volunteers from the Royal Sun Alliance office this year


They were younger and fitter than us - and could get at places we could not reach......
The volunteers did a superb job - thank you.
Thanks to Nigel Oliver (Green Business Network 3rd from l) for organising the RSA volunteers.
