Northern station celebrates blooming great awards success

18 October 2021
Volunteers at one of Northern’s West Yorkshire stations have been celebrating success after winning top accolades from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). 

Mirfield in Bloom and Friends of Mirfield Railway Station were presented with two certificates for Achievement and for Excellence in Gardening, Community and Environment at the It’s Your Neighbourhood awards, part of the RHS’ Britain in Bloom campaign. 

The volunteers have turned the station into a riot of colour by planting a meadow, installing planters filled with butterfly and bee-friendly flowers, herbs that passengers can take home to cook with, and creating a light display in the underpass.  

Judges praised the “much loved and cared for” station and the work the volunteers have done to create as much biodiversity as possible.  

Tony Baxter, Regional Director at Northern, said: “I’d like to thank all our volunteers who have created a beautiful space for everyone to enjoy.”  

“Our community partners are the heartbeat of the railway and we’re extremely proud to work closely with them to deliver such a wide-ranging positive impact for the north of England.”   

Christine Sykes of Friends of Mirfield Railway Station said: “All this not only cheers up Mirfield commuters, it pleases those passing through on the trains.”
