ESSCRP are working in partnership with Acorn Village. There are three areas where we are working on together.

Mural in the underpass at Manningtree Station:
The residents with staff are producing a mural which depicts views on the Mayflower line and surrounding areas. The first board is in the underpass, and the other mural vboards are being worked on at Acorn Village with a view of them being completed by June 2017.

Deliver a rail safety talk to residents:
This was delivered in the autumn and included residents and staff. It was a great afternoon and residents were provided with goody bags and a certificate. The talk was delivered in the 2016 Rail Safety week.

Try A Train Day and Ticket Training:
This was delivered in April, and included training at Acorn Village, a visit to Manningtree station, buying a ticket from the ticket machine and travelling to Harwich and return. It was a very successful day with positive feedback from staff and residents.

 

You can buy tickets in advance for our event trains
