A lovely gentleman call Ted Conway once looked after Knucklas Station and for many years the platform was covered in the most beautiful flowers. In later years Ted was unable to do so much but he always kept the station tidy and free of rubbish. Sadly Ted passed away not long ago and we are now looking for someone to take over from him.
This year Arriva Trains (in association with the Heart of Wales Line Travel Association) have set up the ‘Stations Gardens Project’ and are encouraging all the stations along the line to join in. They will support financially toward flowers and planters if necessary, as long as details are cleared with them in advance.
They are looking for someone (or a group of people) to look after the station and make it look beautiful again.
The Castle Inn has offered to support by supplying flowers and planters, a local farmer will provide some large tractor tyres and soil and the Knucklas Castle Community Land Project and Knucklas Community Centre have offered to help too.
If you wish to know more and would like take on the job as Station Adopter please contact Gill Wright at HOWLTA (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) (Tel: 01550 750261)
Next year it will be the 150 year anniversary of the opening of the line between Knighton and Llandrindod and it would be lovely to see flowers on the station again to celebrate the occasion!
