About our Action Group

BRAG was formed in 2005 in response to a proposal by the rail authorities to abandon through train services from the Bexhill area to London Victoria via Haywards Heath.

With the support of the local MP, Bexhill Observer and members of the community, BRAG succeeded in getting this proposal withdrawn, following a high profile media and letter writing campaign and petition.

Following this success, BRAG continues to campaign for improvements to rail services in the Bexhill and surrounding area.
