What we do

Friends of Hinckley Station will work on different projects to help improve the station for passengers and the local community.

Our first job is to restore the garden bed on Platform One by clearing rubble, rubbish and unwanted vegetation. We are planting a mix of bedding plants and perennials to give year-round interest. We are also adding planters on Platform Two, and we will add fruit, vegetables and herbs when the gardens are established.

Inside the waiting room we hope to add a noticeboard, a book swap box and a toy box. Outside the station we are talking to East Midlands Trains and local councils about improvements in the car park, the footpaths and the footbridge.

We raise funds for supplies and materials for these projects from donations and sponsorship.

We also regularly check the station to pick up litter and report problems such as graffiti and vandalism to train operator East Midlands Trains.
