Friendly Rivalry in Beautification
Friendly Rivalry in Beautification.
In Canterbury, Otago and Southland, there are Ladies' Clubs interested in beautifying their localities and districts, whose members devote much time and care to the beautification of railway premises. The Railway Department associates itself with their work, and station garden competitions are held annually when cups are awarded to the winning stations. The railway staff at the various stations are keenly interested in this friendly rivalry and work enthusiastically and with much skill, knowledge and judgment to make the best possible use of the areas at their disposal.
