Noticing Something That’s Not There
Train operator Greater Anglia has announced that The Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership (CRP) in conjunction with Essex County Council, have launched a new activity booklet encouraging visitors to travel to the Essex Coast by train.
Aimed at promoting sustainable travel, the booklet has many creative activities for children to get involved with during their visit to the seaside.
The new booklet is available at railway stations as well as from the Essex and South Suffolk CRP website.
Some of the ideas in the booklet include fossil hunting and sculpting land art from shells and forage finds.
Maps with the most direct walking routes are now displayed on 25 new posters at railway stations.
Jayne Sumner, Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership Officer, said, “We’re delighted to be involved in this big project to introduce new visitors to the area by train. In choosing a green form of transport, they will be helping to protect the local environment by reducing the congestion and pollution from road traffic in the county’s towns and villages.”
Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial, Customer Service and Train Presentation Director, said, “It’s so easy to get to the Essex Coast on a Greater Anglia train and have a day out that, literally, doesn’t cost the earth. Grab a bargain Advance fare and enjoy the area’s beautiful scenery and attractions without the stress and pollution caused by sitting in traffic.”
Cllr. Graham Butland, Cabinet Member for Devolution, The Arts, Heritage and Culture, Essex County Council, said, “There are many stories to discover along the Essex Coast and this booklet will help visitors get the most from the area with activities that appeal to different interests and ages. Why not make getting there part of the adventure? ”
