Shortlands Station staff closed their car park and opened a small fair instead on Saturday 7th June 2014. The station staff wanted to support the work of Demelza Hospice Car for Children which is a charity looking after children across Kent, South East London and East Sussex. Bob visited the stalls, bouncy castle and inspected the stocks designed for the Station managers. Sadly the weather was not ideal but nonetheless it was really good effort by the railway staff and showed how just how much Shortlands Station is a part of the local community. In the photograph Bob is shown with two of the staff - holding a rather exotic flower which he had purchased for his wife!
