The Williams Award & Events at The Station at Hollingbourne

The Station header

On Monday, 8th May, the station will be hosting a Heritage and Volunteering Day, which will tie in with ‘the big help out’.  This is a U.K. wide initiative launching over the coronation weekend to inspire as many people as possible to try volunteering for the first time.
We would love people to volunteer to come and help plant the banks outside the station, so do bring your gardening gloves!
Our heritage event will feature memorabilia from several resident’s collections, including many photos and stories from the last 50 years (and more!).  We are hoping to have live music and homemade refreshments.
We will also be launching The Williams Award, Hollingbourne’s first community award. named after Alan Williams, who was a long-time resident and ardent campaigner for the village.
We would like you to nominate somebody in the village who you feel lives up to Alan’s mantra ‘improving the quality of life for the residents of Hollingbourne’.
Please use the email below to send in your suggestions, with a brief note about why you have nominated that person.
This award will be presented annually, the first being presented at the heritage and volunteering day on Monday, 8th May.
Another date for your diaries!  Sunday ,16th April, will be a pop-up cinema event at the station.  There will be two showings, one at 2pm and one at 6pm.  We are hoping to show train related films this time around, so possibly ‘The Railway Children Return’, ‘The Titfield Thunderbolt’ or ‘Murder On The Orient Express’.
We are able to seat 40 people at this event.
Ticket prices and ways to purchase coming soon.
Refreshments will be available to pre-order.
All profits from this evening will go towards equipping the station shop and café.
Sunday, April 16th – pop-up cinema 2pm and 6pm
