Welsh Books Council's 'Tales on the Rails' Shortlisted for National Community Rail Award

Welsh Books Council

Welsh Books Council's 'Tales on the Rails' Shortlisted for National Community Rail Award - 29 September 2017

Arriva Trains Wales, Cambrian Rail Partnership and the Welsh Books Council worked together on this innovative project linking safety and education in an exciting two-day event. At two lucky schools, rail safety visits were followed by train based activities. On the theme 'Myths and Legends' fascinating stories, delivered by a local author, offered the children a unique opportunity to learn about their heritage whilst travelling the 'epic' Cambrian Coast between Machynlleth and Harlech.

The awards, which are now in their 13th year, recognise the important but often unsung work carried out by community rail partnerships and station adoption groups, amongst others, who provide a welcome social and economic contribution, with their activities, to their communities.

The winners will be revealed at the awards gala dinner and presentation evening held by ACoRP, at The Roundhouse in Derby on Thursday, 5 October 2017.
