We encourage and support Adopters

Station adopters are people that act as the eyes and ears for the train operating company, usually at unstaffed stations. Adopters agree a simple programme of works every year. This includes making sure the station is clean and tidy, checking that information is up to date and managing areas that have become overgrown.

Greater Anglia is a member of our Hereward Community Rail Partnership and is keen to encourage and support adopters at their stations.

If you are interested in volunteering at Ely railway station please contact Greater Anglia.
