Friends of Broadway Station
Our shop has a new sign, please help to support us. The Bric a Brac shop is run by the Friends of Broadway Station and all donations are used for the continued development and enhancement of the Station.
An explanation as to why we have a new name....
The Broadway Area Group, to which the Friends of Broadway Station were affiliated, was wound up at an EGM on 21 July. The BAG was an anomaly within the structure of the Railway, being affiliated to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway Trust (GWRT), and not a department of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway Plc (GWSR), which owns the Railway's infrastructure and operates trains. The GWRT is a registered charity which supports the activities of the GWSR Plc. This historical quirk has now been sorted out with the direct affiliation of the "Friends of Broadway Station" (previously part of the BAG) to the Trust, and the formation of a Broadway Station Maintenance Dept under the Plc structure, mirroring the structure at the other stations - i.e. a department of the Plc to look after the station and a support /fund raising group (FoBS) affiliated to the GWRT.
