KEY ISSUES FACING THE RAILWAY IN THE PRESENT CLIMATE
We are delighted to welcome Peter Kennan, chair of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce's Transport Forum and board member of Transport for the North. Peter also sits on the board of the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership with particular reference to the transport portfolio.
Peter holds several key positions within the transport decision-making hierarchy and is able to provide a unique perspective on the challenges facing our railways. We anticipate this will be a forthright and interesting presentation. Peter will take questions from the Railfuture audience immediately following his presentation.
Our online meeting will be held via the Zoom platform and all are welcome to join. Railfuture members who receive Yorkshire Rail Campaigner by email will automatically be sent a link by email a few days beforehand. Other members and non-members, please contact Andrew Dyson at andrew.dyson at railfuture.org.uk or on 07751 615276 for instructions on how to join in.
We look forward to seeing you on the 26th!
