On Sunday 15th October passengers and visitors to Whitby station will have the chance to find out about local businesses and organisations that are trying to reduce the use of carbon in the area.
A team from Moor Sustainable CIC and Esk Valley Railway Community Rail Partnership will be running a stall from 12:30 – 3:30pm on the station. They will be promoting alternatives to using cars to explore the beautiful Esk Valley and surrounding area.
This year sees the introduction of a year-round Sunday service giving more opportunities to relax and enjoy the view from the train whilst saving CO2 at the same time. For example, using the train to get from Middlesbrough to Whitby and back on the Esk Valley line saves 7kg of CO2 compared to using a car.
From December, the Sunday service will include more direct trains to and from Newcastle, Sunderland and Hartlepool, giving time to enjoy exploring the villages and countryside of the Esk Valley or the delights of Whitby.
Visit the stall and take part in a free prize draw for tickets and pick up the new timetable. The Go Green on a Sunday campaign is funded by the Association of Community Rail Partnerships, the Department for Transport and Northern.
