I believe this represents a great vote of confidence in the Broadway Area Group Volunteers, recognition of the outstanding work already achieved by them, and planned in the near future. It also puts out a very strong message to all supporters and potential investors that the Railway is very much looking to the future now, and Broadway is a cornerstone in the plans for the expansion and future success of the GWSR.
Now here's the thing!
Of course I can now declare our Platform 2A Appeal has reached its goal. Thank you to all who have donated to date. Your support has demonstrated to the Railway that the Broadway Project has a great following. Nevertheless please don't stop your donations coming - for those who have already donated, you have now been joined by the GWR Trust, and for those who have been wavering, please see this as a blue chip project now that is totally supported both by the GWR Trust and the GWSR. The £31,000 will be carefully spent, but it will be gone by the end of 2012. Platform 2 needs to continue northwards, ground works need to start in the car park and on the station site. There is much to do. Please continue to help us!
