New Planters at Stoke Station

Two new planters were installed on Platform 1 at Stoke-on-Trent Station in June.  Funded by Virgin Trains and by the North Staffordshire CRP, these provide some welcome colour to the station.  The planters were made by construction students Luke and Jake from Stoke-on-Trent College.  In addition, a very tired existing planter on the same platform was replanted with herbs, available for picking by passers-by. A volunteer station adopter from Longton Station, Ruth Shaw, led on the plantings and is dead heading, weeding and watering as required.
