A heritage railway is looking for volunteers to help with the running of its operations.

Cholsey and Wallingford Railway will be hosting an event on April 13 at midday for interested individuals.

From maintaining the track to learning how to drive the engine, the railway has a host of activities for volunteers.

The railway is particularly looking to bolster its permanent way gang, a group that takes care of the track.

On top of maintaining the railway, the position also offers physical activity.

Volunteering for the railway not only keeps it functioning, but also gives people the chance to improve or learn new skills.

For further information, volunteer co-ordinator John Sharman can be contacted through the email via volunteer@bunkline.uk.
