The TransWilts Christmas Train Trip Experience took place on Saturday 4th December.

Despite more COVID complications scuppering our usual Santa Train plans, we decided to team up with Swindon Station Adoption Group to bring some families to Melksham to visit the Hub Cafe and the Christmas Fayre. A nice day out for the community and a chance to help local tourism. 🙂

The Swindon residents arrived in Melksham where they were welcomed off the train by Santa himself. Santa gave out some gifts donated by us at TW and The Lions Group. Lunch was on us so we filled up before heading in to town for a wander around the Christmas Fayre.

We all met back at the station for some hot drinks before the families departed on the 16:53 train home to Swindon.

Many thanks to Blooming Smiles/Swindon Station Adoption Group, The Melksham Lions and Community Rail Network for their contributions. A lovely day was had by all.
