Thank you so much to all of you who have volunteered to join the “Friends of Otford Station” group which is managed by The Otford Society working in close collaboration with the Darent Valley Community Rail Partnership. We now have 19 volunteers and you may have noticed some of the changes that have already taken place.
Following on from the new planter on platform 1 there are lovely new wooden window boxes freshly planted with flowers at the front of the station. The horticultural team, led by James Holdak, are co-ordinating the watering of these through the hot weather to keep them looking their best. Huge thanks must also go to Coolings Garden Centre for donating plants. There are further plans to plant spring and summer bulbs down the length of platform 2 to follow on from the autumn planting scheme in the window boxes.
A talented team is working on posters showing the history of the station which aim to be informative, attractive and fun. Look out for these in the coming months! Do follow us on our blog, and if you’d like to get involved email us at email@example.com.
