A Socially Distanced Handover of Bishopstone Station Planters
THE FORMAL handover of two planters at Bishopstone station to the “Friends of Bishopstone Station” occurred on 30th October when President Martin McGill presented the planters to their Chair Barbara Mine.
The planters had been filled with suitable plants donated by Paradise Park.
Watering and maintenance including pruning of the ivy will be by the “Friends of Bishopstone Station”. Paradise Park has agreed to provide new plants in the spring next year.
In March however, due to the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, the project to supply the planters was put on hold, and it was not until the relaxation of the pandemic rules in the summer months enabled an order for the planters to be actioned.
