New Ticket Inspector Role

Welcome aboard

In October we welcomed aboard Matthew Hawes as a new member of our team of volunteers.

Matthew is a train enthusiast and he wanted an active role in the running of our railway, so we created a role for him as Ticket Inspector, working two hour shifts under the supervision of Duty Manager Graham Tuffin.

Matthew is autistic and so has a “portfolio career”, undertaking a variety of roles, rather than a single, full-time paid job,  He waits on tables at a church luncheon club and as well as working on a farm. The ticket inspector role is the latest addition to his portfolio.

Welcome to our team, Matthew!
