Inside, we welcome our three new Board members Sabrina Meksaoui, Alex Kirk and Lee Armstrong. We would also like to sincerely thank our outgoing Board members Mike Garratt, Liam Day and Andrew Harston.

In this issue, you’ll find reports on our recent events, our AGM & Autumn Members’ Meeting, as well as our Annual Rail Freight Conference.

We are delighted to welcome articles from Lydia Cullimore from Burges Salmon, as she shines a spotlight on the sector and Susan Gray from CIRAS, who explains recent changes in managing health and safety risks.

In our Westminster Column, Jonathan Roberts at JR Consulting dives into the detail on the King’s Speech on 7 November and asks what it means for the sector. In our regular GBRTT column, Senior Policy Advisor Alice Bulpin updates us on the goings-on around rail reform and Network North.

We are also currently reviewing how our newsletter is best working for our readers. If you have any views on the newsletter, the areas it covers, the format, the articles, we’d love to hear from you. Do you read it when it is published, do you find it useful, is it engaging, is it missing anything in particular? Please email any thoughts and views to contact@rfg.org.uk and we will use those to help formulate our future comms and marketing plan.
