Community Rail Week started with the Rail Minister Rt Hon Wendy Morton MP travelling from Bradford to Bingley with a South Asian Women’s Group called Stations of Welcome to discuss their experiences of travelling by train.

Bingley Station, she met the Action Stations group, volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure Bingley Station is inclusive and vibrant. The Minister saw a range of initiatives helping to put the railway at the heart of local communities, such as a volunteer-tended garden celebrating the local Five Rise Locks, British Sign Language boards and a book exchange, as well as hearing about the ground-breaking efforts of the Leeds-Morecambe Community Rail Partnership to make the Bentham Line the first dementia-friendly railway in Britain.
