‘JOY OF THE JOURNEY’ TRIP TO BURRY PORT

‘JOY OF THE JOURNEY’ TRIP TO BURRY PORT

Jannine and a group of care experienced young people from Neath Port Talbot got to enjoy a half-day in half-term courtesy of South West Wales Connected - a Community Rail Partnership established by Transport for Wales and hosted by 4theRegion - and its  ‘Joy of the Journey’ project this week.

They travelled from Neath to Burry Port and were joined by Transport for Wales staff and British Transport Police on what turned out to be an extremely rainy day. The wet weather did not dampen their spirits, however.

The project is about arranging hosted train journeys across the region that show how wonderful - as well as easy - rail transport can be; bringing people together, tackling isolation and loneliness, along with promoting sustainable, healthy and accessible travel and tourism.
