Kirkcaldy Rotarians helping town railway station to bloom once again
Members of the Rotary Club of Kirkcaldy have been back at the town’s railway station creating colourful displays for locals and visitors.
The group of around eight Rotarians have been working hard to make the station bloom ever since the club went into partnership with ScotRail in 2011 to supply and maintain planters on both platforms.
The small group are part of ScotRail’s ‘Adopt a Station’ scheme and are awarded a small budget each year to create colourful planting displays.
Club president Alice Soper said: “After a break due to the pandemic, we were recently given permission to resume. We have planters on both platforms and try to create colourful displays. Two of our group also look after a small bed just outside platform 2 (the Dundee side) while my Growing Kirkcaldy members look after the barrier baskets at the front of the station.
She added: “Any plants that have outgrown their tubs are often recycled elsewhere in the town so nothing is wasted.”
