Award fromThe Arts Council

Today, I am really proud to announce, that Nene Valley Railway has been awarded £479,675 by Arts Council England in its second round of Awards.

This massive boost to our railway will help restore our reserves that we have had to use during 2020, and sustain us for the next few months as we continue to move towards ‘the light at the end of tunnel’

Mike Kerfoot, our Chairman, reminded me in his statement, that NVR has one of the longest tunnels on any preserved railway, and our journey to that light at the end has often been a hard one. But, today, with such fabulous news to share, that light has become brighter and together we can get to the end of the tunnel feeling a huge sense of achievement.

I would personally like to thank all the staff, volunteers and supporter of our railway for all they have given in the past 12 mths – without that support I do not know how we would have managed.

Please hop over to our News section on the web site for further information and please share the good news #hereforculture.
