Whilst most of us were struggling to get out of our own front doors, we were fortunate to have a volunteer travel all the way from Paris just to help restore the Mountsorrel Railway!
Kevin Williams, who is British born but has lived just outside Paris for the past 20 years, travelled by Eurostar on Friday afternoon arriving at the Mountsorrel guest house where he was staying, only 15 minutes later than planned. He then spent the day volunteering at the railway on the Saturday before travelling home from Loughborough station later on Saturday afternoon.

We are very grateful for Kevin's help and honoured that he was prepared to travel all the way from Paris just to help Mountsorrel restore its railway.

With the end of the line now only 250m away there really isn't long left if you would like to get involved and volunteer yourself. Track laying requires a large number of volunteers so we need your help! If Kevin has inspired you to get involved please email project leader Steve Cramp for further details.
