Your carriage awaits

If you take the train to, from or even through Newark Castle Station, the Victorian building alongside Platform 1 will no doubt be a familiar sight.

Disused for several years, it’s now been renovated to house a ticket office, toilets and waiting area – and, by the end of next month, its rebirth will be complete with the opening of Carriages Café

Wendy Baird and Suzie Jones, two members of the team behind the project, will be joining June and Sue on the show next weekend to explain how a once empty space has been transformed into a brand new venue that’s just weeks away from opening its doors to train travellers and the local community.

Find out when and why the journey began and how Carriages’ steampunk style was inspired by the building’s 19th century heritage, creating an inviting and unusual setting for meetings, functions – and of course, coffee and cake!

There’ll be news too of the launch of a regular Community Café and events supporting local charities, as well as details of how to get involved in some of the other Carriages Communities they’ll be setting up.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday when Wendy and Suzie take a break from putting the final touches to Newark’s newest meeting place to chat to the Girls Around Town
