Community Rail Network’s senior management will present a special award to a partnership or group that, in their view, has demonstrated an outstanding contribution to community rail over the past 12 months. Nominations are invited for this award, but they must be for a third party, as self-nominations will not be accepted. There will be no shortlist for this category, there will just be one winner who will receive a trophy, cash prize and certificate. This can also be made as a discretionary award i.e. not necessarily selected from the nominations.
