YESTERDAY we said that Polegate miniature railway is to reopen next Sunday.

Now kids have decided to vandalise it:

“It was with great excitement that we announced yesterday that we would be opening our railway to the public next Sunday after one year of no trains.

It was with great dismay that we found today that some of the younger members of the community have decided to stop this happening by damaging part of the track.

We now have additional work to carry out in repairing this damage before next Sunday.

A full two hour CCTV recording of the damage taking place will be passed to the Police in the next couple of days.

If you know any of these faces could you please let us know many thanks in advance.We are still looking forward to seeing all our regular passengers next Sunday.”
