We have booked a stall in the Coalville indoor market on Saturday 26th September. In the absence of events due to Covid this is one way of meeting people to gather support for our campaign. It will also provide an opportunity to sell the CRIL calendar which will give our campaigns a much needed boost.
We are pleased to announce that the first CRIL calendar has been produced and that we are ready to receive orders. A limited amount has been printed and are available on a “first come, first served” basis.
The cost of the calendar is £8.50 + £1.40 postage = £9.90.
Please send your orders by email providing your full address and post code and make payment through PayPal to email@example.com adding “calendar” as the reference.
Alternatively you can write to us at: CRIL Calendar, PO Box 8382, Swadlincote, DE11 1GY enclosing a cheque payable to “Campaign to Reopen the Ivanhoe Line-CRIL CIC”.
I joined the CRIL group right at the very beginning when we had very little interest; how quickly this altered! My role is administrator and minute taker.
I am a non-driver so better local access to public transport is always an important consideration to me. Having lived along the line for some years, I have always had an interest in re-opening the ‘Ivanhoe line’, as my preferred public transport is rail travel. I believe my interest is from an early age – as a treat when I was a child in the 1960’s I was
taken to look at the trains!
A lot of what I do is the more mundane back ground work to ensure we stay compliant, keeping the records straight and accompanying our technical team to meetings to minute take. I am a small cog writhing this fast moving organisation. As we travel along our track I will update you with points of interest, things are definitely moving at a fast pace, now we have been appointed a successful bid with DfT!
The CRIL display has received a much needed revamp and is now ready to roll. The process during the Covid-19 lockdown has at times been frustrating, however, our thanks go to Jake at Design4innovation for his perseverance and for doing such a splendid job.We hope that it will see some action before the year is out.
