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

29 Sep 2017

The Welsh Books Council are very excited to announce that their entry, Tales on the Rails, has been shortlisted in this year's Association of Community Rail Partnerships (ACoRP) Community Rail Awards, in the category of Involving Children and Young People.

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.
