A voluntary group working with the railway industry to promote and enhance Hunmanby Railway Station. Over the last 16 years the station has been transformed with 4 flower beds totalling over 350 foot, making the railway station at gateway to the rural village, betwixt Wolds and Coast. In 2020 the station won a 1st prize in the National Community Rail Awards. During the Covid-19 pandemic 2 projects were completed, restoration of the old Victorian wooden railway bench and a full size (over 6 foot square) North Eastern Railway Tile Map.
