This is thought to be a first for the rail industry and is part of London Midland’s Adopt a Station programme which aims to enhance the appearance of two local stations.

Through the partnership between the local Amazon fulfilment centre and London Midland, a new planting scheme has been developed and new planters installed to provide passengers with a brighter welcome and help ensure that each of the stations are an asset to the local community.

In recognition of Amazon’s support for the two stations, Amanda Milling MP joined Faye Lambert, head of community rail at London Midland on Friday, to present the station adoption team with a brand-new station adoption plaque.

The investment in the stations will make them more welcoming to visitors and commuters”

“I am delighted the stations have been adopted by the local Amazon fulfilment centre and it is a pleasure to join them for the opening ceremony,” said Amanda Milling MP. “The investment in the stations will make them more welcoming to visitors and commuters and is a great example of what businesses can do to support their local community.”

We hope that this project inspires others to take the initiative and make a positive impact in their town”

“The sponsorship and hard work of the Amazon team will breathe new life into Rugeley’s stations, and we are proud to have the company as a part of our local community,” added Faye Lambert, head of community rail at London Midland. “We hope that this project inspires others to take the initiative and make a positive impact in their town by working together and enhancing the appearance of their local stations.”

London Midland has been providing train services to and from London in the south, to Birmingham in the Midlands and Liverpool in the north-west since 2007.
