Spring is coming early to Great Yarmouth station thanks to the hard work of staff and local people’s generosity.
Greater Anglia’s Ann Kirkham and Jane McLeman, of the Great Yarmouth Customer Service team, together with colleagues from the Customer Service North team have planted a vast array of seasonal flowers in hanging baskets and tubs at the Norfolk station.
The colourful plants and flowers were provided by local Norfolk firm Moulton Nurseries. Great Yarmouth station is the terminus of the Wherry Lines, which connects this thriving seaside town with the historic city of Norwich, via the scenic Norfolk Broads.
Says James Steward Greater Anglia’s Rural Area Manager, ‘The flowers really brighten up the station, cheering up the station environment for everyone who visits. These new floral displays are just the first step in a range of improvements we have planned at Great Yarmouth station, including a thorough deep clean, weeding, a newly marked car park, some new signage and display boards which will both enhance the station environment and improve information provision for visitors.’
