Calling All Volunteers on the 4th March 2012

On Sunday, 4th March 2012 The Bure Valley Railway will be hosting its Volunteers Open Day for anyone interested in volunteering on the railway. The day will give the opportunity to meet existing staff and volunteers and see behind the scenes, including a chance to drive a steam engine!
The Bure Valley Railway is Norfolk’s longest Narrow Gauge Steam Railway and operates over the nine miles between the market town of Aylsham and the Broads town of Wroxham. The railway is owned by a small group of enthusiasts and is operated entirely on a not for profit basis, with any profits being reinvested. With the dedication and commitment of a small team of paid staff and active volunteers the railway now carries over120,000 passengers each year.
Andrew Tunwell, General Manager, says “the volunteers’ contribution is essential to the running of the railway and its long term future. Volunteering for the Bure Valley Railway is a great way to get involved with the local community, make new friends and learn new skills. Whatever your age, whether you are male or female, if you have a couple of hours to spare or can make a more regular commitment, we would welcome your help”.
The Bure Valley Railway invites you to see what fun you can get from becoming a volunteer and looks forward to seeing you on Sunday, 4th March
