Elsenham station garden rejuvenated
National Express East Anglia’s Elsenham station has received some extra care recently after a visit from the train operator’s new Area Station Manager for Ely, Alan Neville, whose area includes Elsenham.
Whilst out visiting his new patch, Alan Neville, a keen gardener, saw the potential of the station garden and recognised the benefits a little extra attention would bring.
Alan was encouraged by evidence of previous work which had been undertaken by the resident National Express East Anglia member of staff and the Network Rail crossing keeper. Indeed, in previous years the station had won awards for its garden and horticultural excellence.
To help bring the garden back to its former glory, Alan arranged a gardening afternoon to weed the garden and prepare it for spring planting. So on a recent afternoon Alan Neville and Alex Lucas, spent time in the garden, weeding, clearing and preparing the ground for a burst of colour throughout the summer months!
