NatWest Community Force logoThis nationwide award was determined by an online public vote. Nationally there were 5,813 projects, of which 395 were award winners. Based on the number of votes for a single project Mountsorrel Railway ranked 47th of the 395, placing it well inside the top 1% of the projects that entered the competition. An amazing result, especially considering the project was still relatively unknown at that time, which was rewarded with a prize of £6,250 that went towards the cost of rail and sleepers.
