HRA Award

Today the team (Chairman Steve Cooper, trustees Bob Ayton, Aidan Kelly and Greg Kiteos) visited the Epping Ongar Railway to meet Ian Leigh, Finance Director from The Heritage Railway Association and we were presented with an HRA award for Broadcast and Social Media.  This was the culmination of hard work to increase our profile through the website and social media.   Thanks goes to Dean Walton and The Epping Ongar Railway for their hospitality.   Also thanks to Andy Butler who couldn’t make today but along with Greg have been busy organising events for Holden to attend.
