Signing off the year with some great news!
Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership was featured on the front cover of this month’s GWR Community Rail Connected newsletter!
Our Getaway programme was front and centre. Now rebranded as ‘Getaway’ by the young people who are part of the programme, GCRP facilitates urban youth from Gloucester to explore their rural places by rail and sustainable transport, encouraging and increasing rail confidence and providing enriching creative experiences that builds aspirations for young people’s futures.
We are looking forward to developing the Getaway project further in 2022 and exploring more exciting destinations!
The newsletter also featured our volunteer day that formed part of our Community Rail week programme where volunteers from Network Rail removed overgrown vegetation to make way for raised beds where Edible Stroud will be growing fresh produce. And a special mention of our gallery at Cheltenham Spa which inspires people to explore Cheltenham and wider Gloucestershire areas by rail!
