Colne Valley Railway are calling for more people to get on board and volunteer this season.

The railway, in Castle Hedingham, is run entirely by volunteers, with about 15 people required on each operating day to cover each role, which include track and maintenance staff, train drivers and station staff.

A volunteer day will be held on March 23 between 10.30am and 3pm for anyone interested to see what is involved.

Potential volunteers must be aged 14 or over and under 16s require a parent to take part too.
