Santa’s visit to Maidstone West

Children visited Santa and enjoyed craft activities at Kent Community Rail Partnership’s (KCRP) ‘Visit Santa’ event at Maidstone West Railway Station on Saturday 16 December.

The event was attended by over 100 children who were able to undertake craft activities and listen to St. Michael’s primary school choir in the ticket office before visiting Santa in his grotto on platform 2.

This very positive event allowed KCRP Officers to discuss and encourage greater walking, cycling and train use along the Medway Valley and Swale Rail Lines with the attendees.

This was a free event and over £150 was raised for Railway Children.  Railway Children is an international children’s charity working with street children in the UK and abroad.
