West Runton Station Tea Party 2013

Tuesday, 27 August 2013

Greater Anglia’s West Runton station resounded to the clink of china on Saturday 24th August when the station saw the return of the popular annual tea party. 

The West Runton station adopters held their Annual West Runton Station Tea Party on Saturday 24 August 2013 from 14.00 – 16.00.

Visitors to this scenic station were able to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea, including buttered scones, jam and homemade cakes.  In addition to this, there was also a range of stalls selling local produce and second-hand goods. The Bittern Lines Community Rail Partnership also supported the event with a stall.

Geraint Hughes, Greater Anglia’s Partnerships Manager commented:

“The Annual West Runton Station Tea Party is a fantastic day out for all of the family and a great favourite amongst the local community. What the station adopters achieve is remarkable. Not only did they make a delicious tea on the day, but they have also created a beautiful garden, which is looking better than ever. Greater Anglia would like to thank them for their efforts.” 

The West Runton station adopters are keen gardeners. To support their efforts, all proceeds from the Tea party will contribute to the planting and upkeep of the national award-winning station garden.

West Runton station is situated on the picturesque Bittern Line, which connects the ancient city of Norwich with the North Norfolk coastal towns of Cromer and Sheringham.
