Local Lib Dem Councillors have been supporting the work of the Rose Walk Residents Association for the “Adopt a Station” scheme.
“Adopt a Station” is a nationwide community rail movement run by The Association of Community Rail Partnerships (A.Co.R.P.). This movement can add value to communities, making their stations welcoming and attractive.
South Western Railway (S.W.R.) has welcomed Rose Walk Residents Association (R.W.R.A.) as the station adopter at Berrylands. As the local Adopt-a-Station Group, R.W.R.A. will work with the Berrylands station team to add planters to the station during 2019.
The Chair of R.W.R.A., Dee Ayling, said, “Volunteers will be needed to help maintain the flower troughs outside Berrylands station, as well as with the planting of flowers in baskets along the platform. The first planting day is anticipated to be early in Spring 2019.”
“Look out for the Christmas festive promotion, at the station on Monday 10th December at 6pm, to launch the project, and we hope many residents and businesses can come along.”
For further information, please see R.W.R.A.’s notice board which is positioned outside the station, above one of the flower troughs. This board will be updated regularly with all the details regarding the scheme. For further details and to volunteer, contact: [email protected]
