Stay up to date with the latest news from the Aldingbourne Trust
Aldingbourne Trust has announced their latest Country Centre attraction: aRTie the Land Train! aRTie will debut on Saturday, 03 December, offering a new perspective to showcase all the site offers through the comfort and excitement of a train ride. A Great Day Out at Aldingbourne just got even GREATER!
Karen Tyrrell joined the Country Centre as Visitor & Enterprise Operations Manager 6 months ago. She has since been exploring new and quirky activities to enhance the 'Great Day Out' experience. Securing aRTie was nothing short of a collaborative effort, though. Karen shared, "The Land Train was a little above our budget. But thanks to an Invest4 Grant from the Business Hot House Programme (funded through the European Regional Development Fund and managed by Brighton & Hove City Council), and an Arun District Council Business Growth Grant, we could make the purchase."
Bringing aRTie to the South Coast was no mean feat as his previous home was in Coventry. However, the superb team at R.T. Page, experts in road transport, storage, handling and logistics, offered to make the journey! Robin Gray, Transport Manager, said, "R.T. Page is proud to support such a good local cause and wishes them all the best for the future. We look forward to helping in the future to support the Aldingbourne Trust."
