Half-term hedge planting at Whitwell Station

A great day was had at Whitwell & Reepham Station on Friday 21 February, when families and volunteers planted 108 hedge plants, including native favourites such as snowberry, wild rose and holly, as well as fruit trees.

Local residents and volunteers from Mid Norfolk TCV wrapped up warm to attend the event, part of Norfolk County Council’s Marriott’s Way Heritage Trail Project, at the station’s Platform Two.
The hedging was planted to promote greater biodiversity at the location and replace the trees that had been on the bankside running adjacent to the historic Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway station, which were lost owing to unstable roots and ash dieback disease.
