Community Rail is about integrating stations into their communities and finding out how the railways can best socially and economically support the areas they serve. The Heart of England CRP has been established to bring together rail industry partners, local authorities, businesses, and communities to help maximise the economic, social, and environmental benefits of the rail network to residents, businesses, and visitors.
Community Rail is acknowledged to be powering a ‘quiet regeneration revolution’ in the UK and in the West Midlands we aspire to introduce community rail to many of our urban and rural stations and lines.
We understand that at these unusual times, there are lots of families and teachers who are having to find new ways to engage their children. At the Heart of England CRP we have compiled a list of websites that have some fantastic activities for children (and adults) of all ages.
