New planters at Heckington Railway Station.

Eight new flower planters have been added to Heckington Railway Station in a £2,000-plus project.

The station is a well-used commuter point for villagers travelling to Sleaford, Boston and further afield.

The planters were jointly funded by East Midlands Trains and the Poacher Line Community Rail Partnership.

They are made from recycled plastic and cost £260 each.

The type of planter chosen was approved by members of Heckington Railway Museum.
