We hope this finds you safe and well. We’re extremely excited and looking forward to celebrating the achievements, hard work and enthusiasm of community rail at tomorrow’s Community Rail Awards. It’s not too late to reserve your place to watch online here, and see below for more details on this always-inspiring event.
Community Rail Awards 2021
We’re really looking forward to seeing so many of you in person at Southampton’s O2 Guildhall tomorrow evening – but also delighted to be simultaneously livestreaming this year’s Community Rail Awards, recognising the community groups, volunteers, partnerships and projects that make up community rail. Whether you’re joining online or in person, it promises to be a very special evening, showcasing how community rail has risen to the great challenges of the past year, and continues to innovate and deliver in areas as diverse as social inclusion, youth engagement, volunteering, integrated sustainable transport, and promotional work.
The livestreaming starts at 17.45 tomorrow, with special features, famous faces, networking opportunities, and of course the Awards presentations themselves – reserve your spot here and do pass this link to your fellow community railers!
Don’t forget to have a look at this year’s shortlists to see who’s in the running and keep track of the evening via our Twitter feed and the hashtag #CRA21. Look out for our Community Rail News winners special in your inbox on Friday.
Draft minutes from our AGM are now available here (to be formally approved at next year’s AGM).
