Glaisdale station given makeover by team of volunteers

One of Northern’s popular Esk Valley stations has been given a makeover thanks to a team of volunteers.

A group of 20 volunteers from Northern, Esk Valley Community Rail Partnership, North Yorkshire County Council, Young Rail Professionals and station adopters recently spent the day at Glaisdale station, building new planters, planting flowers, and clearing vegetation. 

The team also spruced up the station fence with a new lick of paint.  

Kerry Peters, Regional Director at Northern said: “I’d like to thank everyone who volunteered to spend the day at Glaisdale – an amazing transformation has taken place in just one day. 

“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.” 

“Our work within the community is part of our wider programme of improvements including the full refurbishment of all our older trains and enhancements at many stations – including improved accessibility – to encourage all our customers to ‘go do their thing’ and explore the North.
