Teams of volunteers help at many stations across the UK network undertaking various tasks to aid the appearance of railway.
Here in the North West they have assistance and guidance from ACORP, Community Rail Cumbria and Community Rail Lancashire they work together with train operators and Network Rail. Tasks involve keeping the general tidiness, painting and planting seasonal flowers.
Contact your local Community Rail organisation via ACoRP for the best results.
EXAMPLE: St Annes - on - Sea a station placed on the South Fylde line from the railway junction at Kirkham and Wesham to Blackpool South. This group is a good example of the work involved of a friends group.
