A voluntary group working with the railway industry to promote and enhance Hunmanby Railway Station. Over the last 15 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.

In the winter of 2005/2006 Hunmanby in Bloom started work with support from the rail industry to improve the environment for passengers using the village station. 

Hunmanby Railway Station has been developed by volunteers over the last 16 years. Project have been supported by local traders, the rail industry, local councillors and officers, the probation service (Community Payback) and our local Member of Parliament.

Over the years the station has been transformed, most of the planting at the station is sustainable and locally grown. Though some annual planting is used for the summer 'wow factor' for the tubs and hanging baskets. 


The photo above is how the station looked in February 2020, the entrance to the Scarborough platform. Contrast this to the photographs on the
