Landscaping Works Complete in time for Easter 2019

After 9 weeks, we are pleased to announce that today 18th April, the landscaping works have now completed. The garden has come a long way since we signed the partnership agreement with Thameslink Rail in 2015 which has seen many incramental changes over time. We will now be adding some finishing touches and watering to help all the plants flourish ready for our opening celebration event on the 1st June 2019. Here is a short slide show of the transformation with before and after photos.
