Congratulations to Jon Honeysett MBE


Congratulations to Jon Honeysett of Kidsgrove/Talke on receiving an MBE.

I am writing to congratulate Jon Honeysett who has been awarded an MBE for services to rail in Kidsgrove.  I have worked with Jon on several occasions since being elected to Kidsgrove Town Council and his knowledge of the railway and Kidsgrove is breathtaking.  Jon is a member of Kidsgrove Environmental Watch Response Group and is also involved with North Staffordshire Pensioners’ Convention and is a member The Spitfire Society.  Jon has also compiled a document for Kidsgrove known as ‘access for all’.  This was handed to East Midlands Trains and Staffordshire County Council in September 2011.  The purpose of the document was to assist with funding bids for the ramped over bridge and transport interchange that Jon so passionately believes in.  The lack of wheelchair access means that disabled passengers cannot access platforms two, three and four, from which popular services to Manchester, London, Derby and Crewe depart. Parents with pushchairs have also complained.

I know Jon has done so much work with other groups and organisations and I just wanted to say thank you.  He deserves this honour more than anyone I know and the people of Kidsgrove and surrounding communities are very greatful for everything he has done.

Best wishes

Councillor Kyle Robinson
