BUSINESSES are being invited to sponsor a garden seen by more than 200,000 people per year.

The floral displays at Matlock station are the work of four volunteers and have won accolades including a first prize in Matlock in Bloom in the past year.

But the volunteers – or ‘station adopters’ – are asking for funds to install more planters and baskets.

Sponsors would get a plaque and a mention on a special noticeboard.

The project has support from East Midlands Trains, the town council and Derwent Valley community rail partnership. Call 01629 538 681.
