Be A Gem

Whilst many of us aren’t able to go about our normal day-to-day, we can still be a community and get creative!

Anyone can take part in this project.  Simply download a template form and fill it with all the things you love.  It could be friends and family, the sea or cake!  Maybe even design a pattern which makes you happy. Choose whichever medium you prefer.  Paint, sketch, collage, crochet or knit.

Once you have finished, send us a photo of your design to our email: or tag us on Instagram or twitter using the hashtag #beagem

Once we are able to do so, we will collate our favourite designs and display them at railway stations along our lines.

We would also love to hear all the different ways we can all Be a Gem – especially during these unprecedented times.  Let us know what’s happening in your community!
