Wow what a fantastic turnout for The Friends of Bishopstone Station History Day event!
After months of research by members of the group led by Jim Stanford some fascinating displays had been created and accompanied by a historical tour from Jim pointing out the stations interesting historical features. Bishopstone is an Art Deco style grade II listed building with added gun turrets (not something you see every day!).
The event was attended by Una the last Station Mistress at Bishopstone now in her 90’s and opened by the new mayor of Seaford Nazish Adil and Town Crier Peter White. Sporting its new flagpole and Friends of Bishopstone Station flag kindly donated by Network Rail the station had never been so busy! With over 100 people passing coming along throughout the day and an amazing £284.61! raised for the groups planned renovations.
Well done to everyone involved and thank you to all of those who attended to make this such a special day!
