Sheringham station brightened up by volunteer


When the platforms at Sheringham station were extended to accommodate Greater Anglia’s new fleet of trains, as part of a £1 million project that included improved LED lighting and a new, bigger and better customer shelter, the one thing that disappeared was the station garden.

To put that right, volunteer Sheila McGinley has worked with Greater Anglia to install three wooden planters which she will fill with attractive plants to brighten up the town’s new train platform with flowers.

Alan Neville, Greater Anglia.

Greater Anglia’s customer and community engagement manager Alan Neville said, “I’m pleased that we have been able to work with Sheila to bring some attractive floral displays back to Sheringham station, to help provide a more welcoming environment to everyone who uses the station.”

Passengers with luggage, buggies and those using wheelchairs will benefit from the improved facilities at Sheringham and on the new trains, which have lower floors and a sliding step at every door that bridges the gap between the train and platform, making it easier to get on and off.

The new trains are also longer, with more seats, plug and USB sockets, better passenger information screens, separate wheelchair and cycle areas, air conditioning and fast free Wi-Fi.
