Become a Friend of Pendle Railway Stations

The ‘Friends of Pendle Stations’ group are looking for new volunteers, could this be you? This is a great opportunity to join this group of dedicated volunteers to help maintain the beautiful train stations along the Pendle line.

The friends of the stations group meet regularly to look after Brierfield and Nelson stations, their main tasks at the moment are to maintain the platform planters and look after the flower beds around the car park.

The Friends of Pendle Stations group meets twice a week for two hours: Tuesdays 10:00am-11:30am at Nelson Train station and Thursdays 10:00am – 11:30am at Brierfield Station.

Derek Jennings, Leader of the Friends of Pendle Stations group said: “We currently have a great group of people volunteering at these beautiful stations, but we are always looking to expand. Brierfield Station is looking beautiful and this is all down to the hard work of the Friends of Pendle Station volunteers.”

‘If you’ve got a passion for trains and love the Pendle stations, this is the group for you… any questions please get in contact, we can’t wait to welcome you!”

Richard Watts, Chair of Community Rail Lancashire added: “Stations are the gateway to the local community and keeping them looking at their best is very important. Across Lancashire many volunteers do just that by creating lovely floral displays and keeping the stations looking tidy and welcoming.  We couldn’t do it without them.”

“This is your chance to get involved with this amazing group of volunteers at the Pendle Stations, learn more about what they do and help maintain the surrounding areas.”

“If Pendle Station isn’t easily accessible for you, there are still many other ways to get involved.  Why not, come and join us at one of our events, volunteer for your local friend’s group or share our stories. There is a wealth of information on our website:
