On Tuesday 1st May and Thursday 3rd May members of the 2nd Market Rasen Scouts, Cubs and Beavers Group visited Market Rasen Train Station to see how the work is progressing.
The children, parents and leaders were given a guided tour by Lindum BMS Site Manager Andy Atkinson, he explained some of the heritage techniques used in the restoration of the building such as the method of plastering, how the windows are restored or replaced and the stone masonry skills on show. During the tour the children also learnt about what health & safety measures need to be in place whilst working on a building site.
After the tour Daniel Clark, part of the Marketing team at Lindum Group Ltd did a presentation to the children at the Scout Hut explaining the storey of the restoration work so far. He explained about how the heritage lottery funding works and showed the groups what the building will look like when completed. Daniel also brought with him some old photos of the project including some when the signal box was present and when the roof was over the train track.
Dan Cole leader of the 2nd Market Rasen Cubs Group said, “It was a brilliant evening, everyone really enjoyed their visit to the station. It’s nice to see that this building is being brought back to life. We would like to thank Andy and Dan for giving up their time and giving us an insight into the brilliant work Lindum are doing at the station. We look forward to visiting again once the project is finished.”
The 2nd Market Rasen Scouts, Cubs and Beavers Group kindly donated two bird boxes to the project as a thank you and we would like to thank them for their generous donation, we will be putting these up at the station when the project is completed.
