Rayners Lane and North Harrow Underground stations take part flower competition
Underground stations in the borough are set to battle it out as part of a gardening competition to celebrate 150 years of the tube.
Staff at Tube stations across the capital have been decorating platforms, station entrances and ticket halls with flowers as part of the Underground in Bloom competition.
Rayners Lane and North Harrow will be competing against 68 sites including stations, depots and train crew buildings all over the network.
Chief operating officer for London Underground Phil Hufton said: “I’d like to thank all our staff for turning our stations, depots and train crew sites into places that are bursting with colour in the 150th year of the world’s first underground railway.
“Real effort has gone into creating these horticultural masterpieces from our workforce in their own time and we know it’s much appreciated by our customers.
“With so many excellent entries it’s going to be tough to choose the outright winners of each category. Every entrant should be proud of their achievements.”
Judges are set to visit each of the stations taking part, with categories including baskets, tubs, cultivated gardens and fruit and veg.
Stations will be marked on the overall display and creativity, with extra points available for those with greener gardens and for displays influenced by the 150th anniversary theme.
Winners of the Underground in Bloom will be announced at an award ceremony next month at City hall.
