On 23rd February Gary Outram met with Theresa and Richard Emmett from Historical Research Group of Sittingbourne, to view the new local heritage information board installed in the waiting room at Sittingbourne railway station.
The history board arose from a community desire to enhance the waiting room. A joint venture between HRGS, the Kent Community Rail Partnership and Southeastern Trains has developed the history board to connect the town’s past to the present, aiming to inspire both locals and visitors to take a look around the town and to learn more about its history.
“The project could not have happened without the support of Southeastern and the HRGS. Everyone is delighted with the end result” – Gary Outram, Kent CRP.
