Commendation for railway station
The gardens at Kemble station
Credit was given to the volunteers who care for the station garden
Kemble station in Gloucestershire has been highly commended in this year's National Rail Awards.

Its success in the Station of the Year category comes 14 months after its community garden was vandalised.

Kemble has recently undergone several improvements, including a fresh coat of paint, new signage and cycle racks and the opening of a station buffet.

Its operator, Wessex Trains, gave credit to the station's staff and its volunteer gardening team.

Managing Director Alan Wilson said: "Kemble is a magnificent example of a station combining modern amenities with historic railway charm.

"Its true wonders are the gardens that are so lovingly cared for by local volunteers."
