An SCV Civic Day thank you

Civic Day bags

So yesterday we held Civic Day 2018 – our focus on why your railway conservation area matters. 

The first thing I want to do is give a big vote of thanks to our FIFTEEN small business sponsors. You made all the difference to the success of the day. Thank you. Find links to all their websites here:  And here they all are:

Business Support for Swindon Civic Day 2018

GLL: Now a word about GLL

Credit where it is due – GLL got onboard with the thing and made it possible for us to open up the Health Hydro and show visitors around that fantastic building. And thanks to the GWR for their substantial sponsorship sum.

Media Coverage

We got some great media coverage of the event. For as long as the link on iPlayer is live there’s this lovely event from BBC Points West:

And this from the Swindon Advertiser:

Now for a few photographs

Big thanks to the lovely ladies of Stitch N Bitch too for this gorgeous knitted hospital display. Isn’t it great?
