Kilkenny Train Station Group

Encouragement AwardIn August 1999 the former West Croydon/Kilkenny Neighbourhood Watch adopted the Kilkenny Railway Station. The first ‘Busy Bee’ took place on Saturday 9 September 2000 with 11 people in attendance. Two of the original volunteers Jean and Gino Chinca are still involved.

Over the years many improvements have been made to the station such as sleepers being added, plants being planted in the garden and the benches added. The work is carried out on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 9am to 11am. For several years the work was carried out by 4 dedicated volunteers, Jean and Gino Chinca and Kaye and James Borgas. Over the years they contained the weeding, watered, pruned, picked up rubbish and engaged in a general up keep.

In September 2015 the local ‘Gorilla Art’ group became involved and now we have quite a few extra helpers and volunteers. In 2016 the Kilkenny Railway Station along with the Wilpena Terrace upgrades and local pole painting won an award in the Charles Sturt Spring Garden Competition.

Over the years there has been many positive compliments given about how good the station is looking.
