The first Open Meeting of Coastliners’ 2017-2018 year will take place at 7.15pm on Thursday 27th April 2017 in the Reading Room of The Athenaeum Club, Church Street, Hartlepool. We will be welcome to use the bar from 6.30pm until soon after 10.30pm.
Coastliners have of late been much concerned with various aspects of the potential setting-up of a Durham Coast Community Rail Partnership (CRP): whether to proceed with such a project; the procedures involved in setting-up a CRP and the workload involved in doing so.
The main business of this meeting will be to address these questions . To this end we will have two distinguished guests: Mr Brian Barnsley, Operations Manager, Association of Community Rail Partnerships (ACoRP) and Mr Ian Davis, ACoRP Operations Officer for the North. We hope that Brian and Ian will provide us with the information which we need in order to decide whether to proceed and, crucially, how to go about setting up the CRP.
We hope you will join us on 27th April
