Since January 2017, the nursey has been responsible for tending the flower beds at Poppleton Station under the overall auspices of Northern Trains’ Community and Sustainability Manager. It is very desirable that the station is properly maintained for the benefit of both the local population and visitors, particularly as the latter may be visiting Poppleton for the first time.
The work is undertaken by a small team of nursery volunteers who meet weekly throughout the year. Activities include regular planting, watering and tidying the flower beds and planters on both platforms. New displays are provided each spring and autumn to keep the station looking attractive and colourful. Plants are sourced from the nursery using funds provided by Northern Trains.
