Dehenna Davison MP was welcomed at Bishop Auckland Train Station this weekend to discuss work to provide modern facilities.
The local MP for Bishop Auckland met with staff and members of the Stockton & Darlington Railway Youth Team on Saturday to discuss their work to modernise the railway. The station has been working to improve facilities such as a new waiting room and ticket office.
The station said via Facebook,
“We were thrilled to welcome newly elected Dehenna Davison MP to Bishop Auckland station this afternoon. We were proud to explain our progress towards providing modern facilities, which includes the new waiting room and ticket office, to passengers travelling from Bishop Auckland.”
The day started with a brief tour of the station followed by a discussion between staff and the young volunteers, and a piano performance! Following the visit, Dehenna said,
“It was great to meet with the team at Bishop Auckland Train Station this weekend to hear about the fantastic work they are doing to improve services at the station. Alongside their hard work to provide modern facilities, the station offers young people fantastic opportunities through the Stockton & Darlington Railway Youth Team.”
“I love the piano and have often heard people playing whilst waiting for their trains. I’m grateful to Luke for sharing his musical skills with some ABBA, and to the team for selling my ticket to return back to Parliament this week.”
The station also offers those aged 11-16 a range of work experience, volunteering and leisure opportunities through their Stockton and Darlington Railway Youth Team.
