Tram Story Competition Celebrates Young Writers
02 March 2017
Tram customers have the chance to help NET celebrate some of Nottingham’s best young writers with the exciting new ‘Stories on the Trams’ competition.

NET has partnered with the First Story charity for the project which has seen local school children given the challenge of writing six-word stories exploring their ideas of ‘Nottinghamess’.

The very best of the stories now feature on special handrail-hangers on board the city’s trams and customers are being asked to pick an overall winner from a shortlist of six.

Stephanie Moss-Pearce, NET’s Assistant Marketing Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be involved in a project that not only aims to help local youngsters with their literacy skills, but also encourages them to think about what really gives our city its identity.

“The children have had great fun writing and sharing their stories, and we hope our customers will also get plenty of enjoyment out of reading what they have put together.”

The special ‘Stories on the Trams’ handrail-hangers will be available on trams throughout the month and customers have until Friday 31 March to cast their vote either by returning the hanger to the NET Travel Centre on King Street or by visiting

Customers are also encouraged to share their own six-word stories by tweeting @firststory and @NETTram using #Tramstories hashtag.
