Guide Bridge station has the support of a relatively new friends group. The group has been very active and has recently launched a web site to promote their activities.
Friends of Guide Bridge Station was formed in May 2015 by Andy Kettle as a Facebook Media Group [Friends of Guide Bridge Station Rail partnership] as at the time there were no media groups supporting the station.
