Friends of Stations – Bentham

FOBS Short 2 with QR Plain Blue

Bentham Station has a very active Friends of Stations Group that looks after the gardens, flower tubs and embankments at the station. They meet every two months in the station building to discuss their action plan. The group (in partnership with Bloomin’ Bentham) won a first place award in the 2014 Annual Community Rail Awards in the Small Projects (under £500) category for their flower tub sponsorship scheme.

If you would like more information or to get involved then contact Gerald Townson, Chair of FoBS, on or by calling the station on 01524 298940. The group also has a website full of information and photographs and this can be seen on
