Visitors to Spalding Railway Station now have new benches where they can take a welcome break.

To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, district councillors decided to leave a lasting memory of the special anniversary.

Using funds from their designated budget, Coun Gary Porter, of Spalding St Mary’s ward, donated one bench while Couns Gary Taylor, of Spalding Castle ward and Glynis Scalese, of Spalding St Paul’s ward, donated a second.

District councillors have donated two new benches placed outside Spalding Railway Station to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee (57419012)

Each bench is decorated with an ornate floral design featuring the dates of her Majesty’s reign, and a commemorative plaque which will sit proudly outside the station for years to come.

Months in the planning, East Midlands Railway gave permission for the benches to be placed outside the front of the station, with Coun Jack Tyrrell securing the new seats in the ground.
