FOWS fresh up flower beds at Walkden

July 5, 2009

Flower bed on Wigan platformWe’ve been unable to attend to the flower beds for a few weeks due to holidays and commitments, so there was quite a bit of weeding to be done at the station this morning.

We also put in some new bedding – Busy Lizzies and Pansies – to brighten it up, and some beautiful begonias kindly donated by Peter Hope (who also gave us the wonderful sunflowers now shooting up on both sides of the platform).

Hopefully this year we won’t have any plants nicked and they will give pleasure to station visitors all summer long.
