Tyne and Wear Metro operator Nexus has released a message of thanks and support to transport workers who are keeping the region moving during the lockdown from the Dean of Newcastle, the Very Revd Geoff Miller,
Tyneside’s most senior clergyman has recorded a video message for frontline workers who will be on duty on local transport networks over the Easter weekend.
In a message that could equally well apply to transport workers anywhere, he thanks staff who continue to work during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown to deliver the essential public transport services, which other key workers need to get around, including many NHS employees.
Revd Miller said: “I’m really grateful to be given this chance to wish you well, and most especially, on behalf of us all, to thank you. To thank transport workers, who on buses, metros and ferries, keep things moving, even at times like these.
“Please be assured, you are in our thoughts, and if you’ll let me, I’d like to send you a message of gratitude, and offer a prayer for God’s gracious blessing, on you and your families. ”
