I am backing Tamworth to be the location for Great British Railway's HQ
Not only would winning the bid help boost our town regeneration project but Tamworth has a long history with rail.
Winning the bid could bring new audiences, new jobs, new STEM thinking and innovation to the town.
It could also help us show off Tamworth's top talent, from technology and engineering expertise to our fantastic heritage and tourism offer.
Tamworth is one of the few places where you can take a train to the capital every hour, thanks to being so well linked on railway network. Let's make more of it!
- The bid has been put in by Tamworth Borough Council
- Staffordshire County Council are backing the bid
- Next we'll hear if we're shortlisted in May
- So we need to make some noise!!
- Fill in the survey and let us know you back the bid!
*Update July 2022*
Tamworth unfortunately didn't make it into the final shortlist but our friends in Birmingham did!! Let the Government know you want the HQ to be in the Midlands by participating in the public vote which runs until 15 August 2022
So many local people work in the rail industry in Birmingham, so this could be a real boost to our region!
