Businesses urged to support planting plan at station

Businesses are being asked to dig deep and help brighten up Keynsham train station with floral displays. Example of barrier baskets

Severnside Community Rail Partnership has teamed up with the Keynsham in Bloom working party to come up with ideas to make the station more welcoming.

As part of the scheme, the groups plan to install barrier baskets on the platforms to create colourful displays.

Local businesspeople can get involved by sponsoring a basket for £100, to cover the cost of the basket and planting in the first year. Plaques will be placed on each basket with details of the sponsor.

Planting in future years will be supported by the In Bloom working party, Keynsham Town Council and through fundraising.

Details of this year's Keynsham In Bloom contest have also been revealed. The theme for 2013 will be “Bees, Butterflies and Blooms”, with entrants urged to make their displays as bright as possible. Entry forms will be available from March.

For information on the railway station project and how to become a sponsor, or on Keynsham in Bloom 2013, contact Dawn Drury on 0117 986 8683 or email
