HOW WE DO THINGS
Many successful bodies, including other heritage railways and indeed mainline railways, have adopted a code of common values and expected behaviours. These codes help to bind an organisation together by setting out some principles around what it believes in and how its people are expected to treat each other.
Now that we are about to reopen for what we hope will be our first post-Covid running season it is time for the Kent and East Sussex Railway to have such a code. Having received the endorsement of the managers, the trustees formally adopted it at the Board meeting on 27 March 2021 and it is attached here: KESR Values & Behaviours document April 2021.
It is short and simple; it sums up the spirit of our Railway when working at its best and makes the basic point that even when we disagree, we treat each other with courtesy and respect. If we can all live up to it, we shall make our work and / or hobby still more enjoyable – which after all, is why we are all here.
Please read and embrace it as we move our Railway forward together.
