Rail customers at Skegness have been promised an even cleaner station following further investment by East Midlands Trains.

Skegness-based Grosvenor Services has been appointed to provide additional cleaning at the station throughout the year, with increased activities for special events and throughout busier months.

More than 350,000 customers a year use Skegness station, with the majority of the journeys taking place during spring and summer.

Until now, the station team has been responsible for cleaning the station in addition to other duties to keep the station running smoothly. This new investment will provide a dedicated cleaning team at the station throughout the busiest times .

Adrian Allen, Service Proposition Manager for East Midlands Trains, said: “We know how important it is to passengers that our trains and stations are clean and tidy. That is why we are investing to make sure they are cleaned even more frequently.

“Skegness is one of our busiest and most popular stations during the spring and summer months and we hope customers will recognise and welcome our efforts to provide an even cleaner and tidier station.”

Joe Walsh, Commercial Director at Grosvenor Services, said: “Our focus on quality of service and innovative cleaning methods helped to win this prestigious contract. The station is in constant use by the community and visitors, and requires a high standard of cleanliness. We are proud to play our part in improving people’s experience when they arrive at, and depart, this popular tourist destination.”
