An East Lancashire train station is looking for new volunteers.

The Friends of Pendle Stations group is looking for new 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, 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: on Tuesdays 10.00am to 11.30am at Nelson Train station, and Thursdays 10.00am to 11.30am at Brierfield Station.

Leader of the Friends of Pendle Stations group, Derek Jennings, 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.”

Chair of Community Rail Lancashire, Richard Watts, 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."
