LUDLOW residents are being offered the opportunity to join Transport for Wales’ (TFW) ‘Adopt a Station’ scheme.

Station adoption is a network wide scheme involving people who support TfW in keeping stations in good condition.

More than 140 partnerships are already in existence across the network with successful partnerships formed at Craven Arms and Church Stretton.

Cleaning and maintenance tasks are undertaken on a weekly basis by TfW’s own maintenance teams, while volunteers are asked to provide feedback twice a month on any issue that may affect their station; for example faulty lighting, litter or damage to a shelter. This ensures that any issues can be promptly addressed.

Where possible, volunteers can also form groups to help maintain station gardens and floral displays funded by TfW. Many stations gardens have been recognised over the years at regional and national awards.
