The Skipton-East Lancashire Rail Action Partnership has welcome the support of the Skipton Building Society.

David Cutter, chief executive of Skipton Building Society pictured above (left) with SELRAP chairman David Walsh at Skipton Railway Station, said: “We are pleased to help and support the SELRAP group in its campaigning for the reopening of the Skipton-Colne railway line as part of the national network for passengers and freight.

“At Skipton Building Society we recognise that improved links between East Lancashire and Leeds will bring economic and social benefits to our heartland and we are proud to support that.”

SELRAP is delighted that Skipton Building Society is supporting the campaign and their recognition of the real benefits it would bring by re-instating the line.
