Volunteers brave strong winds to tidy planters at Prestatyn Station

FRIENDS of Prestatyn Railway Station braved strong winds on Saturday to tidy up and rearrange planters at the station.

Geraniums, which have been on display throughout the summer and autumn, were bedded away in a greenhouse and replaced by winter flowering pansies, spring bulbs and heathers.

Planting in oblong planters leading to the booking office were also supplemented and areas were brushed down.

The group are waiting for news of the application to Awards for All and Prestatyn Rotary Club for grant funding. The team hope to plant up five two tier planters along the length of the main platform, along with a pictorial meadow on the old disused platform one in the spring.

Cllr Sherry Edwards, secretary of the group, said: “This was an excellent example of what can be achieved when volunteers step forward to help.

“We are determined to keep up the momentum at the station to ensure that it looks its best throughout the year. There will always be those who criticise - we invite them to join us and help make a difference.”

Cllr James Davies added: “One of our ambitions is to provide signage at the station indicating that Prestatyn is home to Offa’s Dyke Path. I am continuing to work on this aspect of our project.”

The group’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 26 at Ty Pendre Community Centre at 7.30pm.
