The 2017 Annual General Meeting of Campaign for Rail will be on Saturday 18 March 2017 starting at 10.30 am and finishing at 12.15 pm.

The venue is the Bertha Wright Room in the Carr’s Lane Church and Conference Centre, just across the road from Birmingham Moor Street station.  A map showing the exact location is displayed below.

We are very pleased to welcome this year’s guest speaker, Faye Lambert who will be giving a presentation “Your Community, Your Station, Your Railway".  Faye at present is the Community Engagement Lead for London Midland, who is the current operator of local rail services in the West Midlands.  London Midland is currently encouraging more community groups to adopt their local station.  Groups in Longbridge and Hednesford have already taken up the offer.

Faye has also worked as the Community Rail Officer co-ordinating the “North Staffordshire Community Rail Partnership”, which has been running for 10 years on the Crewe – Stoke – Derby line.

As well as CfR members we would welcome any community groups in the West Midlands interested in their local station and wishing to find out more about the station adoption scheme.

It will be followed by our AGM, in which we report on our campaigning and you tell us about your experiences and aspirations.  We look forward to seeing you.
