As we see an easing in COVID restrictions, the Parish Council is supporting the local Walking for Health group to attract more ramblers, increasing the footfall in the village, retail outlets, cafes and pubs etc, also  encouraging use of the local rail service. A small grant has been secured from West Midlands Railway, primarily to establish a web site (www.albrightonrailramblers.co.uk) and produce advertising material  and it is in this latter regard that I seek your support.

At this time, the distribution of leaflets is not being encouraged, leaving notice boards and social media as the best means of advertising this initiative. A poster expanding on this is attached and I would be very grateful if you could circulate this as widely as possible in your locality. Additional ”hard copies” can be posted to you, if required, by phoning 01902 441748.

I thank you, in anticipation of your support and assistance.
