Briefing Thanks from Barbara Keeley

March 10, 2010

Once again Worsley MP Barbara Keeley kindly produced a briefing note for the FOWS AGM (she was unable to attend due to her commitments in Westminster). In the briefing Barbara congratulaes FOWS members for their “hard work and dedication” in securing Sunday services for the station. The note also reprises Barbara’s crucial interventions in the campaign – meeting the heads of Northern Rail and transport Ministers to press the case.

One could spend a long time debating whether it should be necessary for the Rail Minister and the Chief Executive of Northern Rail to be personally involved in a local decision like this, but the fact is that’s the way the privatised railway works and we are extremely grateful to Barbara for pulling out all the stops to get the key decision makers together.

A copy of Barbara’s briefing can be seen in our poster case at the station.
