A fundraising curry night is to be held in aid of a project to convert a village railway station into a community hub.
Trimley Station Community Trust is aiming to restore the buildings at Trimley – which have been closed since 1967 though the station is still a stop on the Felixstowe-Ipswich line – to their former glory and include a community café, meeting rooms and exhibition space.
A cycle hire facility is also being considered for visitors to the nearby nature reserve.
Project director and trustee Adrian Reynolds said: “All this take a deal of time, dedication and money – we constantly fund raise to cover costs such as insurance whilst we make approaches to the various funding bodies.”
To help with the fundraising, a charity curry night with quizzes, games and a raffle is being held at the award-winning Bombay Nite restaurant in Walton High Street on September 18 at 6.30pm. Tickets are £20, available from 01394 794094 or via email@example.com
