Jan Wilson, Labour leader of the Council and Councillor for Manor Castle ward, has called a protest at Sheffield Railway Station on Monday 21st. She writes
You all know about the intention of East Midland Trains to make Sheffield Station a ‘closed’ station.
I am organising a protest there on Monday 21st at 11.00, meeting at Supertram stop at rear of station – we are going to go through with a placard saying ‘Don’t stop Access through Station’ or something like that.
Would anyone like to come? and can you inform anyone you think might be interested.
I will try to get the Sheffield Star to come with photographer
I have also emailed the Chair of the Transport 4 All group, which is active on issues which affect people with disabilities
I will be joining the protest and I have challenged the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives to get involved too. This must not be an election stunt, it must be a powerful show of force from a united community, determined to keep pedestrian access to the station.
