Village volunteers spruce up Radcliffe rail station

Councillors joined the efforts of partner organisations and Radcliffe villagers

More than a dozen volunteers from Radcliffe-on-Trent joined partner organisations today to spruce up the local rail station they have adopted in the village.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder Cllr Roger Upton and Cllr Neil Clarke joined a team led by Phil Thomas and operatives from East Midlands Trains, Network Rail and Sustrans East Midlands to maintain Radcliffe station’s tidy appearance, with support from Lincolnshire County Council.

The volunteers scrubbed and painted signs and fences and cut back and pruned vegetation that the council’s Streetwise team later collected for green recycling.

It follows the council’s call last month for future improvements to be made to the Nottingham-Grantham poacher line on which the station lies, to benefit local communities and promote wider economic growth of the area.
