Panel 8 : Association of Community Rail Partnerships.

Association of Community Rail Partnerships - ACoRP

ACoRP is the membership body for almost 50 Community Rail Partnerships. Heaton Chapel is part of the Crewe - Manchester CRP and ACoRP representmore than 1,000 station adoption groups. They act as a conduit between their members [like FofHCS], national and local government and the rail industry.

Their role is to provide support, advice and guidance on developingcommunity rail initiatives at grass-roots levels, and they have been extremely helpful and supportive since 2011 when or Friends of Heaton Chapel Station group was formed.
