British Sugar Supports Wissington

19th February 2011

Press Release: The British Sugar Group has donated £400 towards the restoration of a 70-years-old steam engine that was built to work at its sugar factory in Wissington, near Kings Lynn. The small but powerful industrial locomotive, appropriately named Wissington, is being restored by volunteers from the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway Society, the supporting charity of the North Norfolk Railway, and will run on the Poppy Line when completed. Society Trustee Ian Lake is leading the project, and says: 'This generous gift will help us accelerate work on the loco, and with any luck we should have her back in service this year.' British Sugar produces over a million tonnes of sugar each year, selling under the Silver Spoon brand. It is a division of Associated British Foods plc, and the Wissington factory is one of its major plants.
