YVG Take Over

The Young Volunteers Group are delighted to announce that once again, on Sunday the 29th of September, the Young Volunteers Group will take the reigns and run the railway on their own for a day. This will be the second Young Volunteers operating day. Their first one in March was a huge success, so big that a second engine had to be added to the train to assist the steam engine due to the large number of carriages that were needed to accommodate all the passengers. It was one of the railways busiest days so far this year.

The young volunteers all loved working together to make the day happen. By the end of the day all the Young volunteers had huge smiles on their faces and there was a lot of positive feedback from the passengers who joined them.

Once again Young Volunteers will be carrying out all roles including driving, serving passengers, selling tickets and more. 

The Young Volunteers Group (YVG) work together as a great  team and love to hang out with each other. The group is a fantastic way to get involved with something a little bit different and do your part in helping preserve a piece of Victoria’s history, which would otherwise fade away. As well as learning new skills and doing your part to help bring something special to the community, the YVG is a great place to form friendships. 

Come along to meet the Young Volunteers and see them in action! Maybe you would like to get involved with volunteering as well!
