Volunteering Taster Day
September 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Train-mad since childhood, Ray Bell from Alston in Cumbria has just fulfilled a 40 year dream to become an engine driver. She has joined the volunteer crew at South Tynedale Railway and is thrilled to be taking passengers along the newly extended line to Slaggyford in Northumberland.
But it’s not just about driving locomotives! South Tynedale Railway is run by a blended team of volunteers and a handful of paid staff and there are a multitude of other jobs which volunteers get involved with, from being a Christmas elf or a Halloween witch, to supporting family events and school visits to wrapping presents for the Christmas grotto, helping with mail outs in the office, repairing track, maintaining buildings, gardening and so much more that YOU could get involved with.
Join us for our taster day and find out more.
