Luton Airport Parkway station has been given a makeover thanks to the installation of new floral displays.
A team of Govia Thameslink Railway staff were busy at the station clearing five sacks worth of debris and litter from undergrowth at the front of the station and installing 10 wooden planters full of locally-sourced flowers and shrubs.
Now that the area has been cleared, staff intend to sow wildflower seeds to encourage bees and other insects.
The planters and bird boxes were all constructed by inmates at Her Majesty’s Prison, The Mount, based at Hemel Hempstead.
What did the officials say?
Luton Airport Parkway Station Manager Joe Healy said:
“The whole concept is to give passengers stations they can be proud of and stations they can enjoy. It was a really good day. Everyone got stuck in and we cleared quite a bit of debris to make way for the planting of wildflowers. All the new displays have helped brighten up the station.”
