Where does the time go?

It's June already and after all the beautiful spring flowers have finally finished, the Lilacs and Forsythia are resting until their next season. One thing for sure is that the good growing weather has made the weeds flourish, but fortunately all our other annual plants have done so as well!

We have been busy with our summer planting and are happy to say that we have managed to plant some 20+ dozen plants--no mean feat! You may notice on the Crewe platform that the planter next to the platform seating is full of red geraniums. Yesterday we planted a mass of red poppy plants in amongst them courtesy of the Parish Council. The idea being that we hope there will be a plethora of red to commemorate those lost in the 1914-18 war, especially from the surrounding area.

We are pleased that there has been an excellent take-up of timetables and booklets since we were able to obtain the holders courtesy of John Kenny and Stockport MBC.

As always, thanks to Andy and Kath Gildon for their invaluable help. Andy and the strimmer have an almost full time job on their hands and when not strimming he is mowing the two patches of grass outside the station building! Editor's comment: I'm sure Mr Hammond means the flawless green lawns :-)

We hope you will all enjoy this summer's colourful plantings.
