May GALA - LATEST

Apr
07

We are looking for volunteers for this event - in particular to fill the car park rotas. Our recent planning applications have generated increased interest in the railway and the car park marshals are often the first railway members that our visitors meet so will need to be welcoming as well as informative. We operate a system of shifts of which there are 36 slots over the two days - we have several of these filled, but as always need more

We are also looking for helpers and greeters.

Apr
12

We have now received at Chelfham two bench seats and a table for the restored Waiting Room.

Once again we are indebted to David Ely at 'Great Yeldham Carriage and Wagon Works' for some magnificent joinery and thanks also to the volunteers who helped with the finishing.

The furniture was transported from Essex to Devon by Michael Dee for which we are very grateful.

Work to the interior of the Station is almost complete, just a few finishing touches left.
