Neil also explained the work of WICR -Women in Community Rail - to Ruth and its championing of more women in the rail industry. Penny, in FOGS, is a keen and active member of WICR and we are keen to promote its work and aims. Neil also praised the work of Andrew Walker and The High Peak and Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership as being an excellent local working forum for the Buxton, Glossop and Hope Valley Lines.
Ruth was also interested in the commemorative display on the Lowestoft Evacuation and Neil explained the background to the story.
Before leaving the station Ruth took time to visit the warm and welcoming environment of TWIG cafe where she spoke to staff and admired the Christmas decorations.
We thank Ruth very much for finding the time in her busy schedule to visit us. Neil gave her, on leaving, a copy of the 2018 ACoRP Awards' booklet in which our recent awards are highlighted. Ruth had kindly commended us on gaining these. It was overall a most pleasant visit!
