Full Steam Ahead for Swanage Railway and Ellis Jones

Ellis Jones are proud to announce a new partnership with Swanage Railway Trust, to benefit the Charity’s staff in a multitude of ways. Both organisations have been working together for a number of years, which has now flourished into a partnership four years down the line.

The history behind the innovative partnership stems from the gratitude shown towards Ellis Jones, originating from securing a lease allowing Swanage to be linked with the London to Weymouth line. With Swanage Railway demonstrating their ongoing loyalty to the firm, through being a client for more than 14 years, it is safe to say this partnership has been long awaited.

Ellis Jones steams ahead with providing free legal advice to Swanage Railway Trustees and the Board of its trading subsidiary, the Swanage Railway Co. Ltd. General railway staff will be offered discounted legal advice and a free Will writing service.

Ellis Jones has been given the green light to feature in editions of the Swanage Railway Magazine as part of the partnership agreement. Staff members of the firm will also benefit from discounted fairs on services between Swanage and Wareham.

A statement from Nigel Smith, Managing Partner, states “We’re proud to partner with such a nostalgic and integral part of the community. As a firm we’re committed to putting something back into the communities we serve as well as raise awareness of the importance of writing a Will”. “We also wish to encourage the importance of leaving charitable legacies, allowing Swanage Railway Trust to continue to thrive for many years to come”.

Paul Clements, Director and Legacy Officer at Swanage Railway Trust, said “Having worked closely with Ellis Jones during the past 12 months on a complex legal matter, it was only natural that we should seek their support to collaborate on this marketing initiative”.

The partnership leaves Ellis Jones hopeful for future collaborations with Swanage Railway, and to encourage other companies with shared values to get on-board.
