Visit to Hutton Cranswick March 2018

In March 2018, Friends of Hunmanby Railway Station were kindly offered a trip on the local Northern Rail network to a station to gain ideas for improving Hunmanby railway station. The group selected, Hutton Cranswick as it is a village with many similarities to Hunmanby, being a village, having had an unstaffed station for many years with two platforms and long standing involvement from the village 'In Bloom' group to make the station a community asset.

The group of 8 had a very warm welcome from Hutton Cranswick in Bloom. The Friends group were not only showed around the station, but given a tour of the old station buildings by their current owner. This was followed by a tour of the village finishing at the village garden centre for refreshments.

Just like Reighton Nursery is so supportive of village projects in Hunmanby, Hutton Cranswick have had generous support from their village garden centre. The support of local traders is so often vital for village community projects.
