• In 2018, 3,271 people used a Disabled Person’s Railcard in Corby, compared to 2,319 in 2015. The Disabled Person’s Railcard offers 1/3 off adult rail fares for travel on the National Rail network in Great Britain for people with a disability that makes travelling by train difficult. If travelling with another adult, they will also get 1/3 off their rail fare. There are no time restrictions on the Disabled Person’s Railcard, so you can use it to get a discount on tickets at any time of the day. For more information on the Disabled Person’s Railcard, please visit:

Also, if you have taken any photos of constituency landscapes or landmarks, which could be featured in my ‘Community Notices’ headers, please send them in and I will try to use as many of them as possible (and credit them accordingly!), as a celebration of the fantastic place we live and work in. I know we have many budding photographers in our community and it would be great to showcase their work!
