Brownies look forward decorating station tree
BROWNIES will be getting in the Christmas spirit by decorating a railway station’s Christmas tree.
Ruckinge Brownies will be decking the halls with boughs of holly at Hamstreet station’s booking office on Saturday to brighten up the station.
The tree has been provided by Southeastern.
Ruckinge Brown Owl Nina Pickup said: “The Brownies really look forward to this event and have a great time making Hamstreet station look ready for a merry Christmas.”
The station will now look festive for the special Father Christmas train which is due to call at Hamstreet on December 22 at 10.41.
This train stops at all the normal stations at scheduled times but passengers who book a seat with Sussex Community Rail Partnership (telephone 07891 556897) will get a free gift from Father Christmas in his Christmas carriage.
