The Friends of Crewkerne Station are ready to defend their title in the Christmas Decoration competition run by the Blackmore Vale Community Rail Partnership. FOCS won the cup last year for the most number of passengers voting for their festive decorations. They have once again joined in the Christmas spirit by brightening up the waiting room at Crewkerne Railway Station and have chosen a snowy theme this year. FOCS Secretary Gail Coleshill said: “The station is always worth a look around for the planters and in the summer for the wild flowers but at this time of the year, the waiting room is looking very festive and there is colouring for the children.
“We are very pleased that people are using our borrow a book, book shelf for their journey. We always need books and welcome donations. This year we have welcomed several new members to FOCS and have been delighted to once again enter into the station competition and in the Christmas Tree festival at St Bartholomew’s Church. We would like to wish one and all a very Merry Christmas.” For more information on FOCS visit www.crewkernetown.org/friendsofcrewkernestation
