Two London Midland stations, Rugeley Town and Rugeley Trent Valley, have been adopted by online retailer Amazon.
In what is thought to be a first for the rail industry, Amazon has joined London Midland’s award-winning Adopt a Station programme to show pride in its community by enhancing the appearance of two local stations.
Through the partnership between the local Amazon fulfilment centre and London Midland, anew planting scheme has been developed and new planters installed. The colourful new floral displays will 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, 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.
Amanda Milling MP commented: “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. 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.”
