THE OPENING OF THE NEW MORETON-IN-MARSH RAILWAY STATION WAITING ROOM

5th July 2019:

Giving my speech next to the new waiting room The new waiting room at Moreton-in-Marsh station was officially opened on the afternoon of Friday, July 5.
A plaque to mark the occasion was unveiled by Cotswolds MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown and Diana Barr and Jackie Jessop, the sisters of the late CLPG stalwarts Oliver Lovell and John Stanley respectively. I recalled their roles in fighting British Rail’s moves to close the line between Moreton-in-Marsh and Evesham in the late 1970s and campaigning since then to maintain and improve train services and the route’s infrastructure.
