On Wednesday the 4th October 2017 a petition was presented to the National Assembly for Wales Petitions Committee on the steps of the Senedd in Cardiff. The petition has 878 signatures and was delivered by 6 members of Carno Station Action Group. The group presented a similar petition just over 10 years ago and wanted to show the NAW and the Welsh Government that the campaign for the re-opening of a station in Carno is as strong as ever and is has substantial support from the local community. A number of regional AMs joined us on the steps to show their support for the campaign including Russel George, Joyce Watson and Neil Hamilton. The petition is due for consideration by the Petitions Committee at their next meeting on the 18th October. To view the status of the petition on the NAW website Click Here.
