Will you become a flower sponsor for 2014?
Will you become a flower sponsor for 2014?

Volunteers from Market Rasen’s award winning train station are looking forward to providing another colourful display on the platforms this year – but they need your help.

They are currently looking for people to become ‘flower sponsors’ for 2014.

All that is required is a small one-off contribution towards the cost of planting and general maintenance throughout the year, as the group’s secretary Martin Barnard explains.

“A donation of, say, £10 would buy three large bags of compost, £15 would provide five trays of colourful bedding plants and £20 would buy enough bulbs to bring a burst of spring colour to the platform areas,” he said.

Anyone who would like to sponsor them can send their donation to Martin Barnard (Secretary, Station Adoption Group) c/o 5 Stable Way, Market Rasen, LN8 3FQ.

Any cheques should be made payable to ‘Station Adoption Group’.

Martin is also happy to speak to anyone who has any questions or queries about becoming a sponsor or about the group in general.

Call him on 01673 843108 or email: .

Volunteers are generally at the station every Sunday too from 9am, when the regular tidy ups take place.
