Surrey Group

Welcome to the Surrey Support Group

Established in 1991 we were the first Area Support Group to be created.

Our objectives are:

  • To promote and raise funds for the restoration of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway by taking our L&BR Sales Stand to railway events and exhibitions. Group members are welcome to help man the sales stand, especially at venues close to where they reside.
     
  • Organise local meetings, social events and visits to places of interest.

Membership of the Surrey Group is available to members of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust. As a group member you will receive by email each issue of our ‘Tablet’ magazine/newsletter to keep you updated of our meetings, activities and achievements.

Please contact us if you would like to join us, you will be most welcome. To get in touch please click HERE (link sends email).

Surrey Support Group - Kempton Park Toy & Train Collectors Fair

May
24

On Sunday 21st May the Surrey Support Group attended the Toy & Train Collectors Fair at Kempton Park Racecourse where we had a 12 foot sales stand.

We did not take our usual range of Woody Bay items, as our purpose at this event was solely to dispose of some of the railway models and books which were bequeathed to us following the passing of Gerald Chandler last year. We did however have a quantity of 2017 Timetable leaflets which were enthusiastically taken by visitors.
