A group of volunteers including Chiltern Railways staff and residents from Gerrards Cross have dedicated their time to improving green spaces around the town’s train station.

Volunteers from the Bucks, Berks and Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) along with residents and station staff, worked together to clear the grassy bank next to Gerrards Cross railway station to make it more attractive to wildlife.

The bank, on the London-bound side of the station, has been revitalised to make sure it remains full of wild flowers and a “haven” for wildlife.

As part of Chiltern Railway’s sustainability programme, the team from BBOWT will visit Gerrards Cross station at least twice a year to remove weeds, while spreading seeds for flowering plants that will encourage bees and other wildlife in the future.

Rob Munday, Chiltern Railways Station Manager, said: “At Chiltern Railways we always try to consider our impact on the environment. The team we are working with at Gerrards Cross station are dedicated to making sure that the large grassy banks at the station retain their ecological balance, which is needed to sustain the natural habitat for native flowers and wildlife.”
