Kent & East Sussex Railway announce Robin Moira White to join Board of Directors
Robin Moira White has accepted an invitation to join the Kent & East Sussex Railway Board of Trustees. Robin is a London Barrister specialising in employment and discrimination matters but originally trained as a railway operations manager with British Railways and held appointments in Kent, Sussex and the West Country before taking up her legal career.
Robin is a life member of the heritage line, lived in Tenterden in the 1980’s and volunteered then on the line as a guard and signalman. More recently she has volunteered on the line’s successful ‘Wealden Pullman’ dining train. Robin is well known for providing legal advice across the heritage railway sector and has held senior appointments at a number of other heritage railways. She maintains her connection with the national network as an active member of the Institute of Railway Operators.
Chairman of the Kent and East Sussex Railway, Ian Legg, said: ‘Robin joining our Board is a real coup. She brings a fantastic range of relevant skills, knowledge and connections and will strengthen the Board’s efforts to support our staff and volunteers’.
Robin said: ‘It was an honour to be asked to join the Board of Britain’s original light railway, which I have known for nearly 40 years, at such an exciting time in its history with the reconnection to the main line at Robertsbridge in prospect.’
Robin has been co-opted for now and must offer herself for election by the members of the Railway at its Annual General Meeting in November.
