Help Feed the Hungry Masses

A significant part of the railway’s income comes from coach and private party bookings.  In many cases the availability of special catering (cream tea, tea and cakes or fish and chips) dictates whether we get this business.  The On Train Catering dept. volunteers are struggling to cover all of these duties and extra help is urgently needed.  If you can spare an hour or two to help serve on these trains it might avoid us having to turn customers away.  You would be working as part of a team laying up the tables, serving the refreshments and then clearing away.  This usually only involves being on the train for one or sometimes two return journeys.  

If you think this might be an area where you can contribute to the railway’s success whilst being part of a friendly team of volunteers or would like to know more about what is involved please give me a ring on 01793 726351 or e mail me on

    May I support what Richard S is saying - OTC is such a vital part of the Railway and its income is so important. We expect this to be of the order of £100,000 this year, 10% of our total. This is linked with the fact that so many visitors find our food services excellent and it clearly adds to their come back/recommend inclination.

    Please make a special effort to give your support.
