"Louis Wall has won the Civic Champion award at the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards 2016. Established in 2010 these awards are unique in Scotland as it is a national celebration of good local design and conservation as nominated and evaluated by local people. Its aim is to identify projects or buildings and people that have had a positive impact in a local neighbourhood and have delivered positive benefits to that community.
"Six years ago Louis noticed his local station, Stranraer, was lacking in colour and life so, with approval, he set about transforming it with imaginative and colourful plants. Since then, he has achieved plantings at 20 stations in the South West of Scotland with the involvement and support of many volunteers, local groups, communities and schools. He works long days to achieve his objectives: making the stations of South West Scotland bloom with vibrant colour."
