Friends of Grindleford Station

In 2020 FoGS applied for a grant towards the cost of a new flower bed on platform 2 of the station from the National Garden Scheme (NGS). The existing bed was a tangled mess of long established weeds, brambles etc, a great deal of help was also provided by the contractors who were carrying out extensions to that platform.
As soon as the platform upgrades were completed the work then began to plant various shrubs, flowers and bulbs etc.. A grant was received from the NGS together with a grant from Grindleford Parish Council.
In recognition of their transformation of the flowers beds FoGS were awarded a ‘Community Gardens Award’ by the NGS. A small ceremony took place at the station on Friday 10th June 2022 where a plaque was handed over to the group.
