Appointment of TransWilts Community Rail Officer

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Sophie Martin as our new Community Rail Officer effective from Monday 8th October 2018.

Initially she is working 3 days per week Tuesday to Thursday inclusive and may be contacted by email at sophie@transwilts.org and by telephone 07379 17 5055.

Would you kindly update your records and note that all future TransWilts community rail officer correspondence should be sent to her.

This is part of our restructuring to increase the future effectiveness of our CRP. We are also shortly introducing a “TransWilts Ambassador” role - to be responsible for supporting passengers at our stations and coordinating with our volunteer and rail user groups.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me - or of course Sophie.

A question is raised as to whether the previous holder of the role was effective enough:

P.S. Paul did say "Thank You" to the previous holder of the position at TravelWatch SouthWest on Saturday, in the "Just a minute" slot ... a "thank you" so positive that I'm afraid it reminded me of an obit.   Paul is a professional operator who clearly wants to move on - I can understand that.
