Donington's bid for a railway station goes to Westminster
Donington’s case for the return of a village railway station is going to the top.
County councillor Rodney Grocock told parish councillors that MP Sir John Hayes is backing a call for the return of a railway station to cater for an influx of visitors linked to the reburial of explorer Matthew Flinders.
Coun Grocock said Sir John has contacted Secretary of State Grant Shapps while district council leader Gary Porter – Lord Porter of Spalding – has raised the issue with the head of British Rail and is contacting the transport minister in the House of Lords to put Donington’s case forward.
