At least 2 important pieces of news for you this month . . .

  • Ted and I met with MCC (Christian Schmidt) and Mott MacDonald (Georgina Berry) on 19th April.  We are pleased to report that the second part of GRIP 3 (the ‘Options Report‘) is almost complete.  We were shown elements of it, which were very encouraging and expect to receive this report very shortly. As soon as we receive it I will put it up on the website under the ‘Documents’ section.

  • On 23rd March, Ted and I again met with Jessica Morden MP. As a consequence of that meeting she has secured an ‘End of Day Debate’ in parliament on 30th April (next Monday). Jessica, as a keen supporter of our project, will be promoting the work done by her constituents in the Magor & Undy Walkway railway station project.  She will emphasise the unique, ‘Community Hub and Walkway Concept’ and the possibility of it being a model for the future.  As an end of day debate it is difficult to predict what time it will be televised (other than it being towards the end of business) but keep an eye on the BBC Parliament channel for further information.  Or it can be watched, live, as scheduled here on parliamentlive.tv .

  • At our regular monthly meeting this month we finalised the plan for the 2018/19 year. Some items were carried forward from last year (now with more certainty) and other, new aims are also added in as targets. Again, the targets are quite ‘stretching’ but one thing is certain, year on year we are making great progress and the vision of a station to serve Magor & Undy becomes ever closer to a reality. One of the early target milestones (end of June), this year, is to hold a public consultation and exhibition and of our progress.  This will enable us to show you the options (from GRIP 3) for the station and its access and to obtain your feedback. More on that next month.

  • Another item on the agenda this month was the May Fayre preparation. This year it is to be held on the Monday, May 7th from 1pm (see the Churchmen’s’ Facebook page for more details).  As usual we will be on our ‘raffle stall’ and talking to you about progress but this year we hope to be joined by representatives of the Magor and Undy Community Hub (MUCH) group, who hope to show you the progress being made with the designs for the hall and landscaping around the Three Fields Site.
