FRIENDS OF WOBURNSANDS STATION

A small group of residents have got together to brighten up the station platforms with a number of planted barrels and planted wall mangers containing colourful mixture of summer flowering bedding plants making beautiful displays of colour as passengers wait for trains or arrive at the station. The volunteers care and water these plants daily. A wall mural fixed to the railings was painted by the Genesis Youth Group from St Michaels Church depicting life in Woburn Sands, a credit to the artists, plus the historical boards by Paul Cox, make the Station and its near –by businesses worth visiting.

All the volunteers are worthy winners.
