Our Team

Amongst shire counties, Essex has one of the largest rail networks with some 80 rail stations. The Essex & South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership (ESSCRP) was founded in 1997 to encourage and promote primarily off-peak travel for residents and business users of the communities along the six branch lines by stimulating a wide range of projects, enabling the communities to increase their economic, social and environmental welfare.

Working initially within the rail industry, Lynda joined us in 2009 and looks after the Crouch Valley and Southend lines.  Lynda was recently very highly commended in the Community Rail Partnership Awards for her work educating young people in schools to stay away from train tracks… unless on a train, of course.


Joining to manage the small team in 2010, Jayne leads the rail development work at Essex County Council and looks after the day to day management of the Community Rail Team.  Jayne enjoys working with volunteers and is keen to improve the branch line stations.


Joining the team in 2012, Terri is based at Manningtree and looks after the Sunshine Coast and Mayflower lines.  Terri enjoys the variety the role offers and likes to work with all manner of organisations and people that the partnership brings together.

Newly joining the team in February 2019, June is based at Chelmsford and looks after The Flitch Line and The Gainsborough Line. She is hoping to bring her previous knowledge of transportation gained from Essex and London to the role. She also hopes her experience of planting up hanging baskets will help.
