2021

Following on from the Government announcement on 22nd February, the Ops Group and CIC Board have reviewed and assessed the guidance given as to how it affects the L&B.

The guidance indicated that theme parks and attractions may be allowed to reopen from 12th April 2021 if the reduction in Covid cases and hospitalisations continues as expected. This does mean that the Railway cannot reopen before that date.

On Track Appeal – Thank you all!

Dec
17
2020

The support for our ‘On Track’ appeal has been truly excellent with over £ 55,000 contributed.

The L&BR has been very fortunate in obtaining various funding grants to help with recovery from Covid which overall should put the finances in good order for 2021.

It has been decided that this would be a good time to close the ‘On Track’ appeal. The aims have been met and the response was heart-warming.

There will be a couple of new funding appeals in the New Year with some exciting – and longed-for - news and progress to be announced shortly.
