Developer donates £420 to help Friends of Droitwich Railway continue its good work

Droitwich Editorial 2nd Jan, 2022   0

A TOWN housebuilder has donated £420 to a group of volunteers who are transforming Droitwich Railway Station and are ensuring visitors get a good first impression.

Redrow Midlands, which has just sold out its properties at The Orchards, Pulley Lane, has given the cash to the Friends of Droitwich Railway.

The Friends of Droitwich Railway formed in May this year and will work with the Worcestershire Community Rail Partnership, West Midlands Trains and other partners to improve the station as a gateway for visitors to the town, whilst enhancing the station’s heritage and supporting with refurbishments.

The donation will enable the volunteer group to improve the passenger experience and help encourage visitors and rail passengers to revisit the station.

The group is planning to regenerate the garden area at the station, including installing two brand new wooden planters ready for spring.

Martin Jones, chairman at the Friends of Droitwich Railway, thanked the developer and said:

“Without the generous donations from organisations like Redrow Midlands we would not be able to continue the transformation of the station.”

Elaine Cartwright, Sales Director at Redrow Midlands, added: “We are excited to be helping the

Friends of Droitwich Railway and their ‘trains-formation’ of the local station.

“The addition of new plants will undoubtedly improve the appearance of the station and encourage more visitors to the area.

“We hope that by donating to this local volunteer group they will be able to continue their important work improving the station.

“We look forward to seeing the transformation very soon.”

Redrow Midlands’ Community Fund has seen the housebuilder develop £5,000 to local organisations throughout 2021 and into 2022.
