Friday, 14 September 2018

Pupils at Cantley Primary School have won prizes in the Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnership poster competition.

The pupils submitted their ideas for railway-themed posters as part of the Cantley & District Flower Show.

Arun Thompson and William Tate took first prizes for their artwork, receiving book tokens.

And train operator, Greater Anglia, will provide all of Class 4 with a free trip on a ‘Wherry Lines’ train which runs between Norwich and Great Yarmouth / Lowestoft, as winners of the Class Prize.

The schoolchildren’s colourful artwork is now on display at Cantley rail station for the entire community to enjoy.

Greater Anglia’s Community Partnerships Manager, Paul Haynes, said, “We are delighted to recognise the excellent standard of work by Class 4 with a free trip. The work of all the pupils who took part looks fantastic on display at Cantley and will help to make this lovely station even more welcoming for those who use it.”

The Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnership, which works to keep the local branch lines from Norwich to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft thriving, also sponsored the Wherry Lines Community Rail Cup which was won by Michael Brook for his fruit.
