The Captain Pugwash Memorial Garden at the railway station has been looking somewhat neglected, since it was first opened by Priscilla Ryan in April 2015. But now, following a call for gardening volunteers, as reported in Rye News in our April 1 issue, a new group of Pugwash Planters has been formed to restore it.
With support from the South East Community Rail Partnership (SECRP), their aim is to plant wildflower and native species, and restore the memorial bench. It is also planned to give visitors more information regarding John Ryan and Captain Pugwash. For further information or if you would like to join the Pugwash Planters in their work please contact SERCP via email email@example.com or telephone 07375 531 987.
Rye Blooms have also added to the welcome of the station with three beautiful hanging baskets at the front of the building. With thanks to Sara Nixon, station staff and the Pugwash Planters for their assistance.
