Volunteers in Community Rail make a significant difference to the life and fortune of some stations and lines - especially the smaller and more remote ones.  GWR has put together a booklet outlining what each of the half dozen or so CRPs has been doing this year, together with a piece on each of the ACoRP shortlisted (or, better, placed) ... and send that round with a christmas with and (none-alcoholic) cheer to a number of volunteers recommended by their CRP.

Although the Coffee Shop is not an ACoRP member, it's really good for our shortlisting to have been included in the booklet - not only does it endorse our positive relationship with GWR, but also it helps inform volunteers and other readers of our very presence - a big "Thank you" to GWR for including our shortlist:
