On Monday, along with Robert Oerton of Grand Central Railways, Chris Madeley went to Pinder’s Primary School, Wakefield, to to read her rail safety book (which won the UK Rail Industry Award for Passenger Safety 2017) CONES ON THE RAILS to the children. Robert brought a book for each child to keep and some for the school library. We had a great reaction from the children who followed the story in their own copy as it was read so they could also see the illustrations. They were able to tell us safety aspects raised in the book and engaged in great conversations about the story. Robert detailed briefly some of the exciting jobs available for children to aspire to on Britain’s railways demonstrating inclusivity, diversity and inclusion for all. It was very rewarding to see how excited these children were to be receiving their own copy of the book as many didn’t own books in their homes. This book has been animated by students of Trinity University, Leeds and the class teacher called this up from the website onto the big screen for the children to watch.
