COMMUTERS can now appreciate a splash of colour on the platform at Bolton station, thanks to young volunteers from The Prince’s Trust.

The Mayor of Bolton, Cllr Elaine Sherrington, cut the ribbon marking the handover of four floral planters at a ceremony last week.

The project was supported by Network Rail, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue and Northern with sponsorship from several local businesses.

“This is a great example of community engagement with the local railway and will help brighten up the station,” said Paul Salveson, chairman of the station’s community partnership.
