Dear Henley Herald Readers
You may have already seen our media release setting out some of the things that we will be doing at Slough and Windsor for travel to the Royal Wedding on Saturday. We want everyone to have a great day and will be doing our best to add to the party atmosphere.
We are running as many carriages as the line will allow, and will keep the service running back and forth from Windsor as quickly as we can.
We have planned for, and expect there to be, queues at Slough and we have contingency at Reading and Paddington stations. At Slough we are creating a party atmosphere with a large screen for passengers to view the build up to the wedding, water, chocolates and other goodies to give out as well as lots of helpful, friendly staff on hand to help.
If at any point Windsor reaches capacity, we have also put contingency plans in place should we not be able to get everyone up to the station; we will work closely with the police on this, and together we will do all we can to make sure everyone has a great time – including of course those going to the FA Cup Final as well!
GWR have been involved in many big events over the years, we understand the responsibility we have to get this right for our customers, for the communities around Windsor and indeed for the nation.
Whatever you are doing to celebrate the day I hope you have a good time, and if you are going to be travelling with us, the key message is to travel as early as you can!
