Upholstering two bench seats for Stogumber Station

During 2017, the Friends of Stogumber Station have funded the purchase, restoration and rep-upholstering of 6 GWR chairs. Four in the platform waiting room and two in the booking office.  In order to complete the seating arrangements it is necessary to upholster two remaining bench seats in matching fabric and return them to their original appearance.

The WSRA Trustees agreed to fund this work.
