Geoff Atherton

We have just received the sad news that popular volunteer host Geoff Atherton has passed away peacefully but unexpectedly at his home. It is a huge shock to his Ffestiniog family and friends.

Geoff had made the platform his own over the last few years as he welcomed and helped passengers in his own inimitable style. I could usually hear him beneath my window making his multi lingual language announcements. He was certainly a character and our passengers loved him. He had graciously allowed others to join him to assist with the Covid-19 check in procedures but still made sure he wore the most important hat! 

RIP Geoff. You will be missed.
