Station Volunteers Update
Autumn is here, but PLEASE will somebody tell our plants? Today Nov.9th, there are wallflowers and primulas flowering and our marigolds have never stopped for over 18 months. Roses are still in bloom along with this season's geraniums. There are shoots from the Spring bulbs--to say we're confused..............!
Summer has come and gone and we feel the station has had plenty more colour throughout the season than any previous year. The commemorative bed of red geraniums and poppies has been well received in this centenary year of remembrance.
Andy and Kath Gildon have kept on top of the lawns for us and have made brave forays into keeping the hedges down; all jobs that we just haven't got the time or strength to do. Many thanks go to them!
Today we also planted the last of our Spring bulbs and caught up on the dead-heading. We also managed to fill 6 large bags with leaves with plenty more to still come off the trees, unfortunately.
It was so encouraging to have a family from Knutsford who use our station regularly, call by today and compliment us on the station gardens. That's the best sort of encouragement to give us and was very much appreciated! So, don't be shy!
News from Northern Rail is that we now have a new Station Manager, Chris Ingham, who has already proven himself to be very pro-active getting 'stuck-in' within 5 minutes of meeting him. Exciting times!
