Colchester Station Receives Accolade

Thursday, 19 September 2013

Everything’s coming up roses for the team at Greater Anglia’s Colchester Station after they received recognition at the annual Colchester in Bloom awards.

The Colchester station team won a ‘Special Contribution’ award in the ‘Transport’ category for the second year in a row.

Colchester station is adorned with numerous flower tubs, trugs and hanging baskets filled with colourful seasonal bedding plants such as Geraniums and Begonias.

The striking floral displays came about as a result of a partnership between Colchester in Bloom and Greater Anglia; and the local station team have diligently nurtured the displays since their creation earlier in the summer. 

Pam Schomberg, Chairperson of Colchester in Bloom said: “The floral displays at Colchester make a huge impact on entering the station, providing seasonal colour for the enjoyment of customers and staff alike. I’d like to thank the Colchester station staff for tending the flowers at the station so carefully and congratulate them on their award.”

Sham Rashid Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager said: “I’m delighted the contribution of the station team has been recognised by this award. Our partnership with Colchester in Bloom has gone from strength to strength over recent years and this year’s displays are the best yet, we are delighted with them.”

The annual Colchester in Bloom award ceremony was held on Wednesday 18 September at Clarice House in Colchester.
