Well done to Julie Gibbon very well deserved !! . Julie works very hard for for the TVCRP as well as the Haltwhistle partnership and Haltwhistle Chamber of Trade 😊.Success at ACoRP Community Rail Awards.
Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership @TVCRP are pleased to announce for
the first time they have won a national award for Outstanding Volunteer
Contribution.
The national Community Rail Award event organised by the Association of
Community Rail Partnerships was held in Telford on 3 October. The Award event
showcases the work and varied initiatives of the 64 community rail partnerships
and 1000 station adoption groups throughout the United Kingdom.
Having been nominated in four different categories, the Tyne Valley CRP’s
nomination of Julie Gibbon for her outstanding volunteer contribution was judged
against the work of seven other nominees from throughout the country. Julie lives
in Bardon Mill and she brings her skills to many organisations in the area.
Julie’s commitment to the Tyne Valley Railway and the area is evident through the
many volunteering roles she undertakes. As well as being a Director and
Company Secretary of the Rail Partnership, she has been instrumental in
developing new project ideas, finding funding and being involved in delivery of the
projects. She made a successful bid to CrossCountry for funding for a Tourism
Development Intern project. This a student the opportunity to work for the rail
partnership, researching use of rail travel and public transport, local attractions
and creating the rail partnership’s own Hadrian’s Wall to take to showcase the
area at the Community Rail in the City event in Glasgow. Her most recent initiative
to secure funding of £500,000 for redevelopment of the old waiting rooms at
Haltwhistle Station has been a challenge but through her tenacity, work will start
soon on the building work. Julie manages the Partnership’s Old Booking Hall at
Haltwhistle, which is a valuable meeting room for a yoga class, meditation group
and the Platform Painters. Through her work with Haltwhistle Chamber of
Commerce, the Old Booking Hall hosts a late night shopping event twice a year
supporting small businesses and producers.
As well as her work for the rail partnership, Julie is Secretary of the Tyne Valley
Rail Users’ Group and of the Campaign to Open Gilsland Station. In addition, her
volunteer work extends outside the railway, she is Chair of Haltwhistle Partnership
and volunteers for Haltwhistle Cubs and for Kielder Water Sailing Club
encouraging people to develop skills on water. She volunteers for Hadrian’s Wall
Partnership’s Nature Trail.
Following the announcement of the Award, Julie thanked everyone for their
support commenting “it’s not just me, we are a team of many players and I could
not have achieved it without you”.
“Julie is very supportive of the local community and the railway. We are very
pleased for her, it is well deserved”, said Fiona Forsythe, TVCRP Officer. “We are
a very small partnership and this award is a great boost for all of our hardworking
volunteers”,
