The railway connection

Behind the scenes , a lot of work is done by the volunteers to know our area and work with our partners for the safety of others.

This morning the Station Officer and Deputy headed off to Norden railway station to meet a representative of the railway to build on our local knowledge

There was also a connection with our days jobs so it was beneficial for lots of reasons.

High tide ? No - using the 4x4 vehicle each access point along the line was checked to see accessibility in an emergency to the track.

Railways are dangerous places , we were escorted by a rail incident officer - but also both of us hold Personal Track Safety Certificates to allow us " track side"

Gates and access were checked so if there was a multi agency incident we can support our partners.

Thank you to Swanage Railway for today's visit.
