GOOD AS NEW: Volunteers work to get Northwood Hills gardens back on tracks

 Published on: 10th September 2019   |   By: Tim Green   |   Category: Uncategorized

A team of volunteers from the Northwood Hills Residents Association have been working to restore the gardens at a rail station to their former glory.

For a number of years, the platform gardens at Northwood Hills were kept immaculately by the station staff and on several occasions, they won The TFL Station Garden of the year award.  

But after a retirement and restructuring of duties, the gardens were left, became unkempt and somewhat of an eyesore.

So a team of volunteers from the Residents’ Association decided to do something and have already made a huge difference.

Chairman Andrew Riley said he was proud of the group’s efforts.

He commented: “Their goal is to enter the platform gardens into the 2020 TFL Station Gardens of the year competition and dare I say win it.

“The volunteers are Lynne Halse, Keith Blunden, Jan Chopani, John Chopani and Fiona Rich.”

Members of the Northwood Hills Residents Association Facebook Group congratulated the group on their efforts.

Anton Rich said: “Hope everyone can respect and appreciate all the work done, AND keep our station Tidy. Thank You All.

“Yes. I stopped for a chat when they’d started and would rather have stayed than gone to work.”
