In 2017 and 2018 I had great pleasure in supporting ACoRP's Community Rail in the City event - see ((here)). The 2019 event will be on Wednesday 15th May .. this is an early flag in the diary so that I don't overlook it.

From our "constitution" thread.


Community Rail in the City

At last - within the last few days - Network Rail at Reading have confirmed that they have space to host two Community Rail booths on 15th May 2019.  One's us, and the other's another GWR CRP who we know well, and who have decided to switch from Bristol Temple Meads to Reading.  Our objective on the day is to inform passengers passing by - especially commuters - of information (such as is available on the Coffee Shop) and opportunities that are available by public transport across the GWR area and wider.  Two meetings already set up on this - ACoRP and GWR and I'm confident of doing a good, purposed stand.


I have confirmation of first meeting for early next week, follow up the following week.   And many thanks for the offers of help on the day which WILL be taken up.    Lots of background thought / work been going on to putting on an excellent and effective show for all concerned, and having fun too.
