This time last year, we were replanting our tubs yet this year, due to the good weather, they are still in full flower and we decided not to replace the pansies with summer bedding plants for a few weeks. Instead we performed some maintenance behind the Bletchley bound Platform. The wild flowers have been stunning this year and as we did not want to spoil them, we hand pulled the brambles, mare’s tails and nettles. Quite a job!! A few conifers along the border did not survive the winter and we replaced them with tree saplings which had been kindly donated. Three hours later we were really pleased when a local resident came along with a cake he had baked for us. Much appreciated!!

In a recent customer survey, Lidlington Station scored 94% customer satisfaction. We are very proud of the contribution we have made to the station and are delighted to see our efforts are appreciated.
