John Kitchen on the mend! ….

Posted on June 8th, 2010, by The Chairman

Great News!

We hear the health difficulties that John Kitchen, our first Community Rail Officer, has been having were last week correctly diagnosed as something rather rare.

More importantly, he tells us that the new medication he has been given is already having an excellent effect.

We hear he’s very much on the mend and expects to resume duties in Cumbria once recovered.

We’re delighted!

Best wishes, John, from all of us.

  1. The Chairman Says:

    More Great News!

    John Kitchen has recovered sufficiently to resume duties in Cumbria.

    We hear that in a strange coincidence one of his first duties is to resume the programme of fitting more Harrington humps in Cumbria – part of the same programme which will see Northwich being fitted.

    John hopes to see old friends on the MCRUA May special train, having missed out this year due to the illness. Remember to book!

  2. Harry Baggins Says:

    That is great news.

    Can you pass on my best wishes to John and ask him where he is up to with the Cumbria Best Kept Station Competition?

    Cheshire is unique. It is the only county in England with a Best Kept Station Competition.

    They might have the mountains, lakes, Settle & Carlisle and not forgetting Homebase adverts(!), but we have stations – especially on the Mid Cheshire Line, excellent ones thanks to John and now Sally.

    I am really looking foward to the Northwich Guardian running with the lead headline “Northwich gets the hump!”

    Excellent news about John and good news re more humps or Easier Access Areas as Network Rail now prefer to call them.

    Processes that need to be gone through for our Northwich EAA are progressing steadily – can’t wait to see them installed – perhaps the headline could be “Northwich Station steps up” – with planters, pigeon netting, new seating, cycle racks and humps the station is certainly heading in the right direction.
