The ScotRail Alliance is hosting a Rail Awareness Open Day at Edinburgh Waverley on 3 May, from 1pm to 3pm.
Customers who have concerns about how they can access rail services and who may need assistance to use trains are invited to come along and speak to the team at the station. Encouraging more people with reduced mobility or disabilities to use the railway and see trains as their preferred mode of transport is the aim of the awareness session.
The event is open to all – including parents with young disabled children, older people with disabilities, elderly customers, carers and companions of people with reduced mobility and those with sight impairments.
A train will be available for boarding and alighting during the session and ScotRail Alliance team members will be on hand to explain the assistance available and also to discuss individual customer requirements.
Every year, the ScotRail Alliance’s on-train and station teams provide over 78,000 assisted journeys for customers with a variety of needs. Assistance for rail journeys can be booked here.
Blackwell’s Bookshop are delighted to host the launch for The Broadview Introduction to Book History, the definitive guide to the history of the book.
For over five hundred years in the West, a particular form of the book—the printed codex—has been woven into the fabric of our lives. It has been the default medium for publicly circulating information and entertainment, and has structured the work, leisure and religious devotion of countless people. Now, as the cultural centrality of the printed book is challenged, we are prompted to reassess its value and its place in the history of media change.
In The Broadview Introduction to Book History, Tom Mole and Michelle Levy aim to help the reader to find his or her bearings within the field, and to provide a map with which to navigate book history more widely.
