It's all thanks to a small but dedicated team called the Worcester Park Station Volunteer Group (pictured above) who gave up their free time on Sunday to begin the clear-up of the area around the station.
Coordinator Nick Baum told The Worcester Park Blog about the group's inaugural meeting:
"After decades of neglect the team removed a huge amount of rubble and other bizarre items from the ground in preparation for ultimately planting the site with shrubs and attractive plants.
Fuelled by delicious home-made brownies supplied by Jenna and Penguins from Jane Louise the team worked hard to take the first steps to improving the environment around the station."
There's a lot more work to be done around the station and that's where YOU come in. To continue its good works, the group needs:
- Volunteers who can give up a few hours to assist with the tidying up and planting out
- Local businesses who may wish to make a financial donation (you will be mentioned in any further local publicity the group gets)
- Donations of plants suitable for planting in the site - thanks to John James Gardening have offered £100 worth of plants (they'll be taking you up on the kind offer soon!)
- Drivers who wouldn’t mind taking waste items to the dump whilst the team clear certain areas
