Who we are

The Hope Valley Railway Users’ Group exists to press for improvements in the train service through the Hope Valley. It has been doing this for twenty years and was reconstituted in September 2008. Our key objective is to increase the frequency of our services that stop in the valley. We are a membership organisation, and currently have more than seventy members, most of whom are regular users of the Hope Valley line.

The HVRUG Committee is as follows:

  • Chair: Kath Aspinwall
  • Deputy: Chair James Shuttleworth
  • Secretary: Peter Gate
  • Treasurer: Mike Pedler
  • Members: Kay Allinson, Kath Checkland, Andrew Dyson, Linda Grainger, Rosie Ollie, David Palmer, Sarah Roberts, John Stubbs, Chris Tsielepi and Sharon Wagg
