Chris and Ken are working on the EBC info board and Graham with his electrical repairs. more commissioned projects to be completed tomorrow and next week including raised beds and a woodstore.

A New Name for our Train

What a good evening 3 Rivers had last night at Chandlers Ford Station.

They had a steady stream of visitors and passengers come and partake in some seasonal food and drink, which helped to promote the work of the partnership at the station. 

A competition was run to name the new wooden train planter on the old platform, with the winning name of “Fordy” being picked randomly out of a box. Well done to Julie, who came up with this fitting name, and we shall be sending her a prize in the New Year. She has also started us thinking about putting spring bulbs into the planter in the next few weeks to start bringing the train into its proper use!
