Craig Harrop, regional director for Northern, said: “All credit to the volunteers across our network that go above and beyond to make the floral displays at our stations truly ‘award winning’.

“Their hard work and that of our community teams not only enhances the aesthetics of our stations but also strengthens community relationships and collaboration.

“This recognition by the RHS is a testament to the power of collective action in addressing local issues and building stronger, united communities.”
