The 2007 East Suffolk Line floral displays were officially launched 02 May at Woodbridge railway station. Members of Woodbridge in Bloom unveiled the first of the flowers that are now popping up at stations along the line.
The group was also presented with a £135 cheque from Suffolk County Council by Woodbridge Mayor James Bidwell, East Suffolk Line Community Rail Partnership Chairman John Brodribb, and ‘one’ Rural Route Business Director Clive Morris.
Last year Woodbridge station helped the town to win a Silver Gilt Award in the Anglia in Bloom contest.
Station adopters and other volunteers along the 49 mile East Suffolk Line are busy filling tubs and hanging baskets at their respective stations. Last year the disused platform across from Oulton Broad South station was turned into a bed of flowers using old sleepers by volunteers from Broadland Holiday Village. This year look for another flower bed on the existing passenger platform.
Most of the work on the floral displays is now well underway. Expect to see a rainbow of colours at your local East Suffolk Line station as Community Rail Week (19 to 27 May) approaches.
