STATION fencing was brightened by volunteers at a corporate challenge day.
Station Friends from Veolia Environmental Services (UK) Plc have been back to Ellesmere Port station, this time painting concrete fencing to provide a more attractive background for the art that young people from the University Church of England Academy have created.
Rossmore councillor Pat Merrick said: “I would like to thank Veolia staff and all the friends of the station for their continuing hard work.
“Their efforts are really making a difference and I am sure that they are really appreciated by rail passengers at this important local station.”
Dave Smith, technical manager organics, Veolia Environmental Services (UK) Plc said: “Our staff enjoy the station corporate challenges and know that their hard work as station friends and volunteers is really making a difference.”
Sally Ralston, corporate social responsibility manager at Merseyrail said: “On behalf of Merseyrail, I would like to thank the Veolia team for the fantastic work they have done at Ellesmere Port which continues to transform the station.
“It is one of our priorities to become more involved in our communities and this project is a fantastic example of what can be achieved by local businesses and volunteers.”
The Station Friends work regularly at the station, gardening and tidying up to make the station a pleasant place to catch a train.
New volunteers are always welcome. For further details on how to get involved, call Sally Buttifant on 01244 976788.
