1st of June 2013 Liz and Graeme joined a growing group of station “foster parents” when they formally adopted Dalmally Station through the Scotrail “Adopt a Station” scheme.
The “Adopt A Station” scheme is aimed at finding community or start-up uses for vacant accommodation at stations across Scotland. The idea is for stations at the heart of their communities and station buildings to be occupied by activities that enhance rail journeys. Stations would also be bright and have tidy gardens and plants.
There are strict but sensible rules governing the use and activities on the working station; and adoptees are particularly encouraged to create vibrant gardens.
Graeme is busy working through the careful renovations of the station and Liz has brought her Felt and fibre business to Dalmally from Ayrshire – check out the HeartfeltbyLiz website for details. Sunny days often mean the Station Platform has craft workshops and activities going on, to amuse the passing travellers on the trains passing through.
