Stationeers

Keep Victoria Beautiful Stationeers program aims to improve the look and feel of railway stations across Victoria by encouraging and supporting enhancement work undertaken by volunteers.
The Stationeers program supports the maintenance and improvement work undertaken by local rail authorities and works in collaboration with Public Transport Victoria, V/Line, VicTrack and Metro Trains.
Railway stations are often the gateway to a community and a clean and attractive station creates a sense of community pride. It is also less likely to invite litter or vandalism.

Stationeer volunteers

Stationeer volunteers establish and improve railway station landscapes by removing litter, installing murals, and gardening. The work they do is extremely important in providing a safer and more pleasant looking railway station to passengers.
To ensure volunteers are equipped to do their job, KVB provides:

• safety equipment (such as high visibility vests, signs and first aid kits)
• safety training
• public liability and personal injury insurance
• permission from the appropriate railway authority to carry out volunteer work.

Active Stationeer groups in Victoria

Stationeer groups provide regular reports to the Stationeer program manager. These reports provide a unified process and monitoring system of the volunteer work taking place across Victoria’s railway stations. The information also helps the Stationeer program manager to ensure that groups are best equipped to carry out volunteer work.
There are currently 51 active Stationeer groups of varying size operating across Victoria.

Sunbury Garden Club!

In 1993 the Sunbury Garden Club under the Stationeers banner established and maintained a stunning rose garden at Sunbury station with the approval and assistance of V/Line staff at the station.
As part of the redevelopment of the station 5 or 6 years ago the rose garden needed to be relocated, the rose plants were removed and taken to a location for safe keeping. Unfortunately, the re-establishment of the garden bed did not go to plan but the garden club members have worked hard and have replanted a new garden bed. The garden bed is beautiful and is maintained with pride, for the benefit of not only railway passengers but the community at large.

Little River Station

Little River station was a bleak windswept location in 2011 and now has been transformed into a lovely garden bed which has significantly improved the amenity of Lara Station. The work has been performed mostly by a wonderful volunteer, Jenni. Jenni has been assisted by other volunteers such as from the local Lion Club. Jenni has been involved in the Stationeers program for around eight years.
Jenni has worked steadily planting out small areas progressively and supports new plants until they have become self-supporting. Jenni also regularly maintains the area removing weeds and litter.
Thanks to Jenni and to all our volunteers who do such wonderful work across the state.

Drouin Stationeers celebrates their 10 Anniversary!!!

In December 2015, Drouin Stationeers celebrated their 10th anniversary.
The group gets together for working bees at Drouin railway station twice a month for about two hours each time. They weed, prune, collect rubbish and generally keep the station and the planted areas round the car park looking good. One of the members goes around from time to time on other days, painting over graffiti and picking up litter.
After the working bees the group goes to one of the nearby cafés for a well-earned coffee and chat.
