The three posters – with a wildlife flower theme – are the result of a competition launched earlier this year by Cranbrook Town Council (CTC).

The prize-winning entries – created by Cranbrook Education Campus pupils Esme Davies, Emilia Mundy and Amelia Russell – will be on show at the station for around six months.

The posters – in weather-proof cases – were recently unveiled in a ceremony at the station.

On hand to see their posters go on display were the prize-winning pupils, plus Cranbrook town councillor Kim Bloxham (deputising for town councillor Derek Atkinson, who organised the competition) and Taylor Wimpey sales executive Nicky Patch.

In January, pupils at St Martin’s Primary School and the Cranbrook Education Campus were asked to create colourful posters for the station.

It is hoped to run the competition annually, with a different theme each year.

The theme for the first year’s competition was colourful wildflowers, inspired by the Cranbrook Country Park.
