Chernobyl children visit Bridlington Station Buffet

On the 3rd July 2006 a party of children from Chernobyl visited Bridlington Station as guest of Northern Rail. As you are aware Chernobyl on 25th - 26th April 1986 was the site of the worlds worst nuclear accident to date. Situated in the former USSR now Ukraine.

The children that visited Bridlington are brought over at no expense to themselves, and the respite they receive while here can add years to their lives.

I can honestly say that these children touched the hearts of everbody who was involved that day at the station, including Northern Rail staff, Station Buffet Staff and customers.

They came in on platform four from Driffield and 22 children with two adults walked over the footbridge and on to the concourse all happy and smiling. They were each given an ice lolly as it was a nice summers day, 22 children said thank-you sat on seats ate their ice lolly, not one bit of rubbish or lolly stick was thrown on the floor. There was no shouting or running about they have got to be the best behaved group of children ever to visit this station. Each child received a 'goodie bag' with various gifts in, the look on their faces was amazing and can not be put into words.

Le rail nordique essayent de placer un autre voyage d'Ukraine pour bien plus d'enfants l'année prochaine (2007) que nous vous maintiendrons signalé.
