Broadway - the last mile share issue exceeds £1,250,000 target on 4th April 2017

Broadway – the last mile share issue reaches £1,250,000 target on Tuesday 4th April 2017!

Dear supporters of the GWSR,

I am delighted to tell you all that, including donations to the GWRT, the share issue has today exceeded our target  of £1,250,000 with 25 days to go before the offer closes on 30 April 2017.

A huge THANK YOU to everybody who has subscribed for shares or made a donation to the Trust (or both!). Without your support reaching Broadway would still be a dream.

If you are still thinking about buying shares or making a donation then I would encourage you to do so, as the embankment repair in Broadway is going to cost at least £300,000 and we had only estimated £80,000 at the time of preparing the share issue document .

We have to make up this shortfall from somewhere.

Anyway, get ready for that opening on 30 March 2018!

Thanks again,


Chris Bristow

GWSR PLC Finance Director


  1. Great news about the reaching the total of £1,250,000.
    It was on the day I received my share certificate.
    How do I book a ticket for the first train?

  2. Hello,there!.Do you have any idea,about when the embankment repairs,will be starting?. Anthony.

  3. Wonderful news about the share issue, let's hope we can raise the extra £220,000 in the next few days this month. Thank you for the nice share certificate I received yesterday.

  4. Just wondered if its possible to "gift aid" the share purchase made, as the EIS status no longer seems possible? This could add up to 25% to the amount raised. I would be happy to do so, if possible.

  5. As for the above, train tickets gift aid etc., also we had our share certificates as well, great work by everyone.
    Paul & Marion.
