A Warm Welcome To Bamber Bridge

Even on the coldest of days there is now a warm welcome to Bamber Bridge station.

Today has seen the next element of a long term project at the station completed with the installation of additional running in boards.

The Friends of Bamber Bridge Station group have been working over the last two years to improve the look of the station with a project that has seen recycled plastic planters installed by local firm Ark Plastics and colourful artwork by primary school children from the local Cuerden Church School displayed on the station.


Helped by Dan Richardson & Mike Baines from local firm Baxi Boilers along with Sue Simpson from South Ribble Borough Council, CRL’s Simon Clarke was on hand to capture images and assist with the installation of the running in boards that reflect the four seasons.


The Friends of Bamber Bridge Station is a partnership with members from the South Ribble Pensioners Association, South Ribble Borough Council, Baxi Boilers, Community Rail Lancashire, The Brothers of Charity, South Ribble Scouts, Arriva Rail North (Northern) and Network Rail.

The project has been sponsored by contributions from ACoRP’s Small Grants Fund, Northern’s Station Adoption Fund, South Ribble Borough Council, Baxi Boilers and Community Rail Lancashire.
