Kemble Station receives Secure Station Scheme Re-accreditation

Share this article

Cotswolds MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown has today written to Ms Sabine Taylor to congratulate her for her work in ensuring that Kemble Station has been re-accredited under the Secure Stations Scheme.
 
This is a national accreditation scheme recognising measures to improve station security and provide reassurance to passengers and staff. 
 
Speaking today Mr Clifton-Brown said “I am pleased to hear that this accreditation has been gained.  We are all keen to see the use of rail travel increase and the confidence of passengers in their own safety in using stations, particularly smaller ones such as Kemble is vital.”
 
With the prospects of the re-doubling of the Swindon to Kemble line increased following the decision by the South West Region Transport and Infrastructure board to divert money originally set aside for a new bypass in Westbury to the work Mr Clifton-Brown believes this reassurance for passengers will further lead to an increase in usage of the station.

Morris Leslie plant hire company rises from losing millions to investing £70m

Perthshire plant hire giant Morris Leslie was hit hard by the Covid 19 pandemic, however the company was struggling before that because of Brexit. Six months before Covid 19 shut down building sites and locked down the UK the company Morris Leslie has already experienced tough times. Uncertainty because of Brexit had already caused building projects to be shut down or paused causing a much lower demand for plant hires and sales. This slowdown had caused an oversupply of construction equipment meaning more competition and so reduced prices. Then Covid 19 hit and the group’s vehicle auctions and Sunday car boot market were shut down.
