The Group has been very busy with the celebrations for the 175th Anniversary of the Lakes Line.  We held a very successful 'birthday party' on Oxenholme station on 21st September.  Our exhibition about the history of the Line continues at Kendal Museum.


Our 2021 AGM was held at the Stonecross Manor Hotel, Kendal, at 2pm on October 30th. We heard an interesting update from Owain Roberts and Martin Keating, and two contributions about the history of the Lakes Line from John Bateson and Dick Smith.  There will be a report in the next Bulletin.


As with any active organisation there are always jobs to be done.  In addition to the regular work keeping our stations attractive to wait or arrive at, we wish to revamp this website, update the membership leaflet and have a presence on social media.  If you can help or advise on any of these jobs, please get in touch.
