ScotRail has announced that a local primary school have helped turn the local Leuchars railway station into an art gallery.
The Fife MS Society set local primary schools the task of creating artwork that would be displayed within the station.
Linda Paton the local artist took the winner’s pictures and transferred them onto boards that have been attached to planters which were built by charity, Men’s Shed St Andrews, on the station platforms.
At least 250 of ScotRail’s stations have been adopted by community groups, these include Rotary Clubs, heritage groups, schools, and NHS mental health groups.
What did the officials say?
Tracy Stevenson, ScotRail Community Development Executive, said:
“It’s great to see young people so enthusiastically getting involved with helping their local community.
“The Fife MS Society has done a fantastic job in brightening up Leuchars station, and I’m sure that the children’s artwork will brighten up our customers’ journeys too.”
Amy Newton, Station Adopter and Fife MS Society Coordinator, said:
“We adopted the station as many of us at the Fife MS Society have a passion for gardening, and with Leuchars station being fully accessible, it ticked all boxes.
“As part of our station adoption, we wanted to involve other parts of the local community, so we ran a competition for local schools to design some pictures we could display in the station. Some of the entries were fantastic, it was really difficult narrow them down.”
