The Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership (TVCRP) and the Bishop Line Community Rail Partnership (BLCRP) are looking for your support. The two Community Rail Partnerships want to work together with two singer songwriters, Gareth Davies-Jones and Sam Slatcher to use music to understand more about the barriers some people encounter to using rail travel.

The good news is that their application to LNER’s Community Fund has been shortlisted.

However, LNER is now looking for your help to decide which of the 80 shortlisted projects to fund.

Please vote for us by clicking on this link

At the bottom of the page click on Diversity and Inclusion, then Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership and Bishop Line Community Rail Partnership: Lyric & Line on Bishop and Tyne.

The voting ends on Friday, 28 May 2021. Thank you for your support.


The Lyric & Line project has seen singer and songwriter Gareth Davies-Jones working with three groups with additional needs, using music and song writing to facilitate experiences of rail travel and was a winner in the 2020 Community Rail Awards.
