Thanks to a £2,000 grant from train operator Great Western Railway, Stonehouse railway station will benefit from a new tree planting project.
Land around the railway station will have 15 new trees planted and Stonehouse Town Council are hoping to engage 50 people of the local community to take part in the project.
Local businesses and schoolchildren will be taking part in creating the Stonehouse Community Arboretum.
A local arboricultural specialist has volunteered time to help with location and species selection.
Stonehouse Arboricultural Association chief executive John Parker said: “This grant from GWR will allow us to make some really great additions to the Stonehouse Community Arboretum in a way which will engage the local community and deliver all of the environmental, social and economic benefits that trees bring.”
“As well as benefitting Stonehouse residents, GWR passengers on the trains passing through the town will also get to enjoy seeing the trees as they grow into maturity in the landscape.”
GWR Community Manager Emma Morris said: “The town council is very keen to improve the approach to Stonehouse Station and this funding will help bring the community together for a project which will benefit generations to come.”
