Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'
Friday, March 06, 2009
Well, this is what I call low key!
The New Somerset and Dorset Railway is now up and running. Membership is open to all. I expect we'll produce a couple of newsletters each year, you will also receive a 10% discount on products through our on line shop. But most importantly you'll be able to become part of the team that will rebuild Britain's most scenic and iconic railway.
I hope that in the first year we will produce - at least - the first draft for The Case for the S&D, as well as build vital links with councillors, MPs, journalists and people living along the route. With something solid behind us and a good team the aim is to do a big media launch (I'll provide the champagne) on 6 March 2010. We may even have our first piece of land by then ...
Membership is by donation only (minimum £5 suggested). Please send payment to New Somerset and Dorset Railway, 10 Bellamy Avenue, Hartcliffe, BRISTOL, BS13 0HW, cheques payable to 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'. I'll set up Paypal facilities shortly as well, with a joining button on the sidebar and also on the website. You can contact the New S&D directly via this page.
If you would like to take an active role please let me know what skills you have, and what you'd like to do!
