Devon Group

Welcome to the L&BR Trust Devon Group

The Devon Area Group has the primary purpose of:

  • Actively encouraging local members to volunteer on the railway to support the day-to-day operations and the many development projects that are needed
  • Organise local social events so members can meet each other
  • Follow up publicity by building a wider membership base in Devon

By talking to our local members we intend to establish a register of who can do what, how often and when to enable the management team at Woody Bay to plan their projects and make best use of volunteer time.

If you want to be involved with or require information about the Devon Group please email Dave Tooke or Nigel Thompson
