Heath Park Miniature Railway & Tramway is run entirely by volunteers, there are no wages.
The demand for rent and rates, electricity, gas, insurance policies & etc. continue through the lock down.
We are funded entirely from the days we are open to the public, by our visitors paying modestly for rides. From time to time families give small donations.
The Heath Park Miniature Railways and Tramway, is owned and run by Cardiff Model Engineering Society which is a charity whose aims can be seen on the Charity Commission's website. Charity number 1123252. Or in the last paragraph below.
To help support the ongoing costs, Heath Park Miniature Railways and Tramway is opening an Emergency Fund.
The aim of this fund is to ensure, post lockdown, Cardiff maintains its 'Jewel in the Crown' and continues to provide the entertainment, education and relaxation for all, that it has for the last 72 years.
Any surplus funds raised will be allocated to future development of the facilities for all to enjoy.
Please support us. Thank you!
