Brownies get green fingers at Handforth Station

4th Handforth Brownies carried out a spot of gardening during a recent visit to Handforth Station.

The Brownies, helpers and leaders were as given a tour of the station's flags and "Platform for Art", the Rotary Garden and station signs from across the UK and Europe - including the recently added twinning sign with Malahide in Ireland.

When not waving to passengers and staff on passing trains, the girls learned about the station's 176 year history and planted some seeds in the flowerbed next to the 1950's vintage platform sign.

Andrew Backhouse, Chair of Friends of Handforth Station, who hosted the visit said: "It was great that a bed first planted by the Guides got new seeds planted by the Brownies - Guides in waiting! We love getting young people involved in their local station."

Jacquie Scobie, Leader of the Brownie Unit added: "The girls enjoyed their visit to the station and found it really interesting and informative."
