CRPs in the south unite as ‘Stations in Bloom’ celebration returns

Blackmore Vale, East Hampshire and South Wessex CRPs, joined by Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership, are working together to deliver this year’s ‘Stations in Bloom’.

The competition is a celebration of volunteer efforts, enhancements, and initiatives in creating welcoming spaces for rail users and visitors. There are awards for planters, station gardens, artwork, shelters, heritage features, waiting rooms, cafes, and more.

Running across the South Western and Great Western Railway network, the celebration will include stations from Salisbury to Exeter, Romsey to Winchester, and Westbury to Weymouth.

Judging is from the 18th to 29th July 2022, and the event culminates on 19th October with a regional awards ceremony at Castle Gardens in Sherborne, generously sponsored and hosted by The Gardens Group.
