Network Rail gets behind Willingdon community with £10,000 funding

Published on : Thursday, March 2, 2017

1Willingdon Trees residents are being encouraged to take part in a public vote to decide how up to £10,000 of community funding from Network Rail will be spent. Three community projects are competing for the funding as part of a Network Rail pilot project to work more closely with local communities and railway neighbours.

 

The projects competing for public support are a monthly family social club and forum, free boxing and railway safety lessons for young people and funding for repainting and renovating Willingdon Trees community centre.

 

Network Rail’s, route managing director for the South East, John Halsall, said:

 

“The railway has a major impact on communities as well as passengers. We are committed to working closely with local communities and railway neighbours to ensure that we have a positive impact on the community. That’s what this project is all about, so please vote and show your support.”

 

Sussex Community Development Association’s, Emma Jordan, said:

 

“The railway is a feature of our community here in Willingdon Trees so it’s great that Network Rail is showing its commitment to our community and to keeping people safe. I would urge everyone to get involved and vote for one of these fantastic projects.
