Station Adoption

Since 2009, the nursey has been responsible for tending the flower beds at Poppleton Station under the overall auspices of Northern Trains’ Community and Sustainability Manager.

Activities include regular planting, watering and tidying the flower beds and planters on both platforms with new displays being provided each spring and autumn to keep the station looking attractive and colourful. Plants are sourced from the nursery using funds provided by Northern.

Other activities include keeping a watching brief on the station generally, trying to have paper timetables always available and promptly reporting any problems such as non-working lights or faults with the electronic train departure displays. Future plans include creating a display to show the history of the station and how, in times past, it was part of a more extensive rail network in this area of Yorkshire.

It is important that the station is properly maintained, both for the benefit of the local population and for visitors many of whom may be visiting Poppleton for the first time. The Adoption Team make a vital contribution to achieving this.

If you would like to join the team please contact the nursery in the first instance to arrange an informal visit and chat.
