The Friends of Bletchley Station (FoBS) has recently been reformed. FoBS have a number of exciting plans for the future including planters and artwork. Watch this space! Check out www.friendsofbletchleystation.org . As well as engaging thousands of people in volunteering, bringing people together and creating pride in station and community, Station Friends Groups play a critical role in making their stations welcoming, pleasant and attractive places. Their work extends beyond basic upkeep, incorporating community gardening and food growing and local arts & history projects. They are also the ‘eyes and ears’ of their local station reporting any faults and issues. FoBS welcome some new members. Would you like to join them?

The Friends of Fenny Stratford Station would welcome some new members too! A safety briefing is arranged and a high-vis jacket, identity card and duty pass are provided.
