Volunteer – Ben Jennings

Guard, Driver & Maintenance Crew Member

PPR Ben Jennings
“I joined the volunteer team at the railway back in May, initially helping clear and prepare the track, but soon progressed to being a part of the track maintenance crew, a passed guard and train driver.  Working just down the road at the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO), I had known about the railway for quite some time, and being a bit of a railway enthusiast I jumped at the opportunity to get it back up and running.

Although my day job is working on community and health & well-being projects at the BSO, I have also spent time working on the ‘big’ railway for Southern at Brighton station as customer service and platform dispatch.

So alongside all my musical activities as a violinist and orchestra chairman, railways big and small are also a passion of mine.”
