Wild Flower Scheme

Organisers said Seaford Station’s community Wild Flower Garden scheme had a ‘brilliant’ first day back on January 24.

The community gardening scheme has been going from strength to strength with continued support from volunteers and donations of plants and bulbs to bring an array of colour to the garden in the spring.

Organisers cllr Sylvia Dunn and Jenny Thornton said they would like to thank the volunteers who gave their time and Mark Epson, area manager of Southern Rail, and Network Rail who carried out the massive clean-up operation on the opposite side, with the outcome of uncovering the old guard house, which is now in need of a makeover.

Jenny Thornton, cllr Dunn and cllr Sarah McStravick have now come up with the idea to run a young person’s art competition to mural the three boarded up windows of the guard house with scenes of a waiting room, guards room and luggage/cloak room to replicate Victorian/Edwardian or the 1920/1930s era. The competition is open to anyone aged 11 to 18. Designs of either one of the scenes should be sent on A4 paper with age, name and contact details, with contact details of parent/guardian if under 18 to: Jenny Thornton at the station, or cllr Sylvia Dunn and cllr Sarah McStravick c/o Seaford Town Council, 37 Church Street, Seaford, by March 20. The winning designs will be incorporated into the windows.
