For everyday heroes

At the end of last week, the good folk at Transport Focus contacted us and asked if we could write a poem honouring the work being done by staff across the transport network – road, rail, bus, and tram – during the coronavirus lockdown. Oh, and they wanted it as soon as possible.

On Monday morning, we submitted a poem to them, expressing our thanks for the invaluable (and often unrecognised) work these men and women are doing in such difficult times. Transport Focus have now added images, and today it’s gone out on social media. You can listen to Wolverhampton poet laureate Emma Purshouse reading a section of the poem here:

Please feel free to share it if you wish. And show your appreciation for transport workers when you get the chance.
