People attend business conference

London Northwestern Railway to hold community conference next month

London Northwestern Railway (LNR) are inviting communities across its network to get involved in its conference next month asking people to get involved with local stations.

The annual Community Rail Conference will take place between 10am and 12:30pm on Thursday 11th November.

The event will be held in conjunction with West Midlands Railway (WMR) when the future of the railways will be up for discussion.

Tim Bellenger, LNR head of stakeholder and community believes the conference will be a chance to celebrate the communities who contribute to LNR’s railways.

Mr Bellenger said: ““Local communities are at the heart of our railways.

“This event will be a celebration of their work at our stations and in local neighbourhoods and a chance to look to the future.

“During the pandemic we have seen more volunteers coming forward than ever before.

“We are excited to bring people together to share ideas for rail recovery, community stations and local neighbourhoods.”

The main topics during the conference will include a business update from LNR and WNR and a look back at the past year of community activity.

Subjects like the future of community rail, placing customers at the heart of the rail business and making stations community hubs to drive social and economic growth will also be up for discussion.
