Thank you for your coverage of the campaign to reopen Stroudwater Station.

Hundreds of people have signed our petition and it’s clear that there is massive local support for a facility that would benefit the whole of the Stroud Valleys by providing a fast sustainable route to Bristol.

Readers can sign the petition on Gloucestershire County Council’s website by following the link or by going to and clicking on ‘Council and Democracy’, then on ‘Petitions’ then ‘ePetitions’.

They can also support the campaign by liking our Stroudwater-station Facebook page and following us on twitter, @StroudwaterSta.

If anyone has queries they can email me on

Please help us to get a direct, sustainable route from the Stroud Valleys to Bristol and beyond.
