Local Assembly Member Joyce Watson has praised local school children and WI members for their work to spruce up Harlech station.
Harlech train station has been given an unusual facelift by members of the Harlech Women’s Institute (WI), working with students from Ysgol Ardudwyl and Coleg Harlech. Mrs Watson met members of the WI to celebrate the completion of the renovation work.
The artwork at the station includes a mural of the Druid story of the Birth of Taliesin which was designed by Helen Barlow, a student at Coleg Harlech. WI members swept the platforms at the station, planting flower tubs and encouraging students from Ysgol Ardudwyl to join in the painting.
Mrs Watson said: “It is great to see such community engagement and I think the work completed by the group is fantastic. It is always heartening to see residents taking pride in their local community and I am hopeful that the group’s dedication can spread to the wider community.
“I am also encouraged by the close working relationship which existed between the WI and Ysgol Ardudwyl in completing this work; such co-operation should be replicated not only in Harlech but across Wales as a means of boosting community cohesion.”
