Adopt a Station

Since 2018 Cardiff East Rotary has adopted Lisvane and Thornhill Station. We provide regular reports on the condition of the station to help with maintenance and we look after the floral displays. Press DETAILS for more information.


Transport for Wales have an 'Adopt a Station' Scheme to help keep their unstaffed stations clean and pleasant. Club members regularly go to the Lisvane Thornhill station to provide at least two reports a month on the condition of the station. This makes the maintenance team aware of problems so they can be addressed.

The Club creates and looks after the floral displays at the station providing a summer and winter display. The team regularly waters the plants to keep them in the best condition possible.

The Club receives regular feedback from station users who appreciate our work and the floral displays.

Eight club members went to the station on 7 June 2022 to plant seven boxes with summer plants which will be at their best between July and September

A recent post on the Llanishen and Thornhill Community page said:

"Many thanks to the men and women of Cardiff East Rotary Club for providing the lovely planters at Lisvane and Thornhill railway station. Cheered me up on a grey rainy morning on my way to London"
