Volunteers at one of Northern’s stations are celebrating success at a prestigious flower show.

Friends of Todmorden Station won a bronze medal at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park this weekend (21st-25th July) in the Community Borders category.

The garden, named Lovers Walk, was sponsored by the train operator, and was inspired by walks to the town’s local landmark Stoodley Pike, a monument where couples would graffiti dedications to each other.

Visitors to the show could see a replica of the monument alongside flowers that symbolise romance such as Larkspur, Dahlias, Geraniums and Nigella (Love in a Mist)

The garden will be dismantled and recreated at Todmorden stations for Northern customers to enjoy.

Tony Baxter, Regional Director at Northern said: “This is an amazing achievement by Friends of Todmorden Stations

“Our community partners are the heartbeat of the railway and we’re extremely proud to work closely with them to deliver such a wide-ranging positive impact for the North of England.”
