In late 2004 the Leamington Society created the Friends of Leamington Station as a group keen to promote the station after its listing as Grade II. The Friends are therefore bound by the Constitution and Aims and Objectives of the Society, and this gives us charitable status as well as the esteem and recognition by local officials of the county, district and town councils.
The day-to-day running of the Friends is decided at meetings held at the station. These meetings are attended by at least one senior member of Chiltern Railways staff for briefing of events and also to ensure that all decisions of the Friends are acceptable to Chiltern Railways who run the station.
We are delighted to have Pete Waterman OBE and Ian Baxter as Presidents.
Membership of the Friends is open to non-members of the Leamington Society, although most Friends do eventually join.
