Guided Walks from East Suffolk Lines Stations Cancelled

Dates for free guided walks from East Suffolk Lines rail stations in have been cancelled due to the latest coronavirus advice.

The East Suffolk Lines Community Rail Partnership was due to hold a guided walk on Saturday 21 March from Saxmundham to Darsham and another on Saturday 4 April from Trimley to Ipswich.

The Partnership’s Chairman, Aaron Taffera, said, “Following government advice to avoid all non-essential social contact, we have reluctantly decided to cancel these walks – but hope that others planned for later in the year can still run.

“Please keep an eye on our website at for details of whether future planned walks can go ahead.”

Posters have been put up at stations on the Ipswich – Lowestoft and Ipswich – Felixstowe lines to advise people of the cancelled events.

Other measures Greater Anglia has taken since the start of the coronavirus outbreak include stepping up cleaning of trains and stations, especially high contact areas such as grab rails, door buttons and handles and ticket gates and topping up soap, water and toilet roll in toilets more frequently.

In line with the rest of the industry, the company has made changes to its refund policy, so customers can change Advance tickets and get free refunds of walk-up tickets.

The company is following all Government hygiene guidelines and encouraging customers to wash their hands and cover their mouths and noses when sneezing or coughing. NHS posters are displayed on trains and at stations.

More information refunds and other coronavirus-related actions is already available on the Greater Anglia website.
