The newly-renovated train station platform in Stamford Bridge will officially open this month.

The opening, on 29 November, from 11am-2pm, will be attended by Philip Benham, from North Yorkshire Moors Railway, who will be assisted by the Pocklington Town Crier Geoff Sheasby and the Stamford Bridge In Bloom band, to mark the 50th anniversary of the withdrawal of services in 1965.
