Station Volunteers Report, July 2015

Home » Newsroom » Station Volunteers Report, July 2015

Summer is upon us, complete with the thundery showers to go with it. At least this has been a help with the watering of the plants. As in our own gardens, the weeds seem to be prolific too!

The roses are superb this year. The original station old standard rose at the front of the bed is continually amazing each year and is full of highly-scented blooms with more to follow. The Gildons donated some roses out of their garden a few years back and they are covered in buds as are the rest that we sourced locally.

A hopefully limited spate of vandalism in June resulted in the timetable holder and leaflet holder being shattered off the wall in the Crewe waiting shelter along with several lots of broken beer bottles. BTP were informed. Unfortunarely they won't be replaced.

Andy Gildon has kept the grass in good order and each year it improves in texture with all his hard work. He is desperate for loan of a specialized hedge trimmer details on the Chelford website.

We are very grateful to the Crewe to Manchester Community Rail Partnership through Stockport MBC for once again funding us towards plants, equipment and upkeep. The grant is controlled for us by Chelford Parish Council.

We were thrilled to be awarded with a beautiful clock each couple by Chelford Parish Council for "Services to Chelford". Totally unexpected! It was said on the night:-

"We live in a beautiful village and it's so nice to give something back!"
