MP Lynne Featherstone meets apprentices at Hornsey Rail Depot
MP Lynne Featherstone visited a railway depot to meet apprentices working on the site.
The Hornsey and Wood Green MP met engineering apprentices at the Hornsey Rail Depot, before putting on safety gear and taking a tour of the site.
Construction firm Volker Fitzpatrick has been contracted to build two new train maintenance depots as part of the Thameslink Rolling Stock Project, and is currently looking to hire new apprentiships.
During her tour, the Liberal Democrat MP saw the building site, including the train wash and the maintenance depot under construction. She said: “Apprenticeships are fantastic opportunities, giving young people a chance to learn a trade while earning money and gaining qualifications.
“That’s why I held the event in Wood Green for young people to find out more about apprenticeships, and why I was so keen to go to Hornsey Rail Depot to see apprentices in action.
“Volker Fitzpatrick is clearly working very hard to build the new depots and facilities, and it’s great that they’re taking on apprenticeships to help. I’d like to thank them for taking the time to show me around.”
