Here is the electronic version of our new poetry postcard. The words are by Helen Ivory and the illustration by Olivia Browne (who also features in our Off the Rails exhibition).

Thanks to Deborah Talbot and Sue Dawes for organising, our two poetry judges (including Lelia Ferro) who chose the winning poem, and to all those who submitted work (which was all judged to be of high quality). Thanks also to the organisations that sponsor us – the Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership, Michaels Estate Agents, the Wivenhoe Community Trust and the Scott/Liddy Locality Grant.

The postcards will be distributed across Essex and London (as much as the legs of our volunteers can carry them!).
