FLIMBY railway station has someone to love it.

It has been adopted by children at Flimby School as part of a campaign to reduce the amount of vandalism there.

This week children from the primary school gave the station a festive air with a Merry Christmas banner and wreaths hung on fences, creating a happy Christmas scene for passengers.

Deputy head Tanya Peers said the school was approached by Northern Rail.

“There is a lot of vandalism and anti-social behaviour at Flimby Station.

“We agreed that if the children got involved the community would get behind them and that might lead to less of this bad behaviour.”

She said plant pots would be established at the station in summer and there will also be a place for children’s work to be displayed.

The school would also like to get Colourful North involved - a charity that helps communities brighten up drab buildings.
