Public Meeting With CrossCountry

We’re grateful to Ben Simkin (Regional Director, North East and Scotland) and Alex Bray from CrossCountry for coming to our public meeting last night. A good range of issues were discussed – but many relate back to the issue of overcrowding, so we look forward to the extra coaches and re-introduction of Newcastle – Reading coming on stream soon. Numbers attending our public meeting were a little bit lower than usual – so apologies to Ben and Alex for that. Was it the General Election Leaders Debate, or the Euros football that kept people away – we’ll let you decide on that. Looking forward to the promised follow-up meeting with Ben to discuss some of our issues in greater detail. And since the meeting was followed by our AGM, I’m delighted to advise I’ve been requested to continue as Chair for another year, and the committee also remain the same for 2024-25.
