Amongst shire counties, Essex has one of the largest rail networks with some 80 rail stations. The Essex & South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership (ESSCRP) was founded in 1997 to encourage and promote primarily off-peak travel for residents and business users of the communities along the four (now five) branch lines by stimulating a wide range of projects, enabling the communities to increase their economic, social and environmental welfare.


Working initially within the rail industry, Lynda joined us in 2009 and looks after the Crouch Valley and Flitch lines.  Lynda was recently very highly commended in the Community Rail Partnership Awards for her work educating young people in schools to stay away from train tracks... unless on a train, of course.


Joining to manage the small team in 2010, Jayne leads the rail development work by Essex County Council and looks after the Gainsborough line.  Jayne enjoys working with volunteers and seeing all the different ideas that they can come up with.


Joining the team in 2012, Terri is based at Manningtree and looks after the Sunshine Coast and Mayflower lines.  Terri enjoys the variety the role offers and likes to work with all manner of organisations and people that the partnership brings together.
