Volunteers have been described as the life-blood of community rail, responsible for supporting and delivering much of the work that goes on in railway environments across the UK.


Volunteering activities within community rail are diverse. They can include community gardening, station maintenance, running events, engaging with schools and community groups, facilitating or promoting walking and cycling activities and working to improve accessibility. The benefits to the rail industry from having a human presence at stations are many and we would love for you to be a part of this.



Would you like to join us and volunteer at your local station? Help with gardening or other projects? This is a great opportunity for people to give something back to their community and meet new friends. Please contact TransWilts Community Rail Officer Sophie Martin – sophie@transwilts.org, 07379 175055.

PLEASE NOTE: We are recruiting for volunteers once restrictions are lifted. GWR guidelines will allow a limited return of volunteering to the stations. These rules will be continually reviewed and may be reissued in accordance with changes in the COVID-19 Alert Level and accompanying Government and National Rail guidance.
