Topic & Speaker:"South to North and back again, reflections of a renegade transport co-ordinator" by John Carr

A graduate of the University of Leeds with over 40 years' experience throughout England, Scotland and beyond, John Carr is a market-oriented advocate for best practice in public transport and increasing public transport use within integrated mobility policies. This talk will reflect on what John would tell his younger self in the light of what he knows now, and on how he sees things evolving over the next 40 years.

The title reflects John's birth - by accident of war - on the Isle of Sheppey, his childhood in North West and North East England, where his love of railways matured into academic and professional interest in transport generally at Leeds University. A year in London preceded a return to Leeds. It was then onto Strathclyde where he had "the best job in public transport anywhere at the time". Fate took him back West Yorkshire with spells advising in Parliament during the passage of Bills that became the Transport Act 1985 and the Railways Act 1993

John will draw on some highlights from a varied and highly satisfying career that he believes show the necessity of having senior public officials with an understanding of transport and its close relationship with planning, the environment and social policies. This is thrown into sharp focus by experience in England over recent years.

Topic & Speaker:"The Glenelg-Skye Ferry" by Jo Crawford General Manager, Isle of Skye Ferry Community Interest Company

The closest point between the Isle of Skye and the Scottish mainland is plied each summer between Kylerhea and Glenelg by the only working manually-operated ferry in existence. Built in 1969 at Troon, the MV Glenachulish served on the Ballachulish Ferry until the opening of the road bridge, then was a relief vessel at Corran, Kessock and Kylesku, the latter two also replaced by bridges. She came to Glenelg in 1982, but after tolls were removed on the new Skye Bridge was put up for sale. Local people set up the Isle of Skye Ferry Community Interest Company to secure the service, leasing the boat in the first year and obtaining a grant to buy it in the second. Jo Crawford will tell us how the CIC has invested in the ferry's preservation and maintenance. Marketing presents it as a unique visitor experience, and the company remains mindful of its duty to the local community. Without the ferry, Glenelg - reached by a former military road over the Mam Ratagan Pass - would be in every sense a much poorer place.
