CRIL staff hard at work manning our stall at Coalville indoor market yesterday. A very successful event providing an opportunity to meet the public and hear their views and to sell our calendar. Sales went well and we recommend placing orders to [email protected] to avoid disappointment.
As part of our business outreach, we’ve engaged with the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, the second largest Chamber in the UK, to help showcase what the re-opening of the line will mean.
EMC have kindly published a short article about the commercial importance of the line, which you can read here.
One of the distinguishing features of the Ivanhoe Line is that it is intended for both commercial and leisure use. Along the 30 mile length, there are thousands of businesses that will benefit from having better transport links for both their employees and customers.
So we’re delighted to welcome Stacey Ash to our team as our business liaison officer.
Stacey has a career in financial services spanning over 30 years. He moved to Church Gresley in 1993 and has been keen to see the Ivanhoe line reopen to passenger traffic ever since. He is currently Chairman of Swadlincote 41 Club, a member of CRIL and Railfuture and is passionate about the campaign. He is married with three children.
We’re looking forward to having businesses back what we’re doing and give us an even stronger voice as we compete nationally to get our line re-opened.
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 protected] 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”.
