Yesterday, the Hither Green Community Association began the clearing of the embankment at Hither Green station on Springbank Road. After receiving a £5000 grant from the Lewisham Mayor’s Local Assembly Fund volunteers took to pruning, litter clearing and strimming the embankment around the Platform 1 entrance. From Labour’s local action team Mike Harris (pictured below) and Damien Egan joined volunteers to help out.
Mike said: “Our thanks go to the Hither Green Community Association for organising this event and to Network Rail for overseeing all the safety aspects. It was a great morning out and I’d encourage other people to come along and help. The embankment is really starting to look a lot smarter.”
