Nominations for Rail Person of the Year

Dale Rozario

Said the following about Laurence Skinnerton:

“Laurence has been a permanent fixture at East Croydon station for the past nineteen years.

During this time he has consistently demonstrated exceptional levels of dedication and commitment towards his work. Always conscientious and reliable, Laurence often rearranges his home life to accommodate his colleagues and always makes himself available to work shifts, even at very short notice, which has been invaluable at times.

His extensive understanding of the railway industry, along with the willingness to impart this knowledge with others has been of great value to both staff and customers over the years and has achieved Laurence a celebrity status at East Croydon.

I believe that the time is long overdue to reward Laurence for all of his efforts and loyalty towards the business, not only for the past year but for the last nineteen years.“
