The 6th April was my parents' wedding anniversary, so a poignant day. The weather certainly left an imprint on the day, too, as the temperature veered from c nine degrees to near freezing in a matter of seconds as I rode back from Swanage on my motorcycle. I'd been down to catch up with the charity railway's director, Mark Woolley, and, chairman, Gavin Johns. My neighbour, Chris Loder, kindly came too as he's worked on the railways for many years and is a font of all knowledge on their workings. We met, socially-distanced, of course, in a carriage, and chatted for two hours about the future of the railway. They have applied for a slice of the Government's heritage pot and hope to have all the appropriate permissions to run trains to Wareham later this year. I, like many of you, I'm sure, am very fond of this railway. It's been rebuilt by a remarkable team of devotees who deserve all the credit for running this stunning attraction. It's an integral part of Purbeck and I do all I can to support it. They have managed to get their hands on some Government funding, which has certainly helped during the pandemic and they are very grateful for. On the virus front, a trial of the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid vaccine on children has stopped giving out jabs while the UK's medicines' regulator investigates a possible link with rare blood clots in adults. Prof Andrew Pollard from the University of Oxford told the BBC there were no safety concerns with the trial itself, but its scientists were waiting for further information. Around 300 volunteers signed up. The Prime Minister said people should get their jab when invited. There's also some kick-back on from leading figures in the UK entertainment industry about the prospect of using Covid passports as venues reopen, especially if they require proof of vaccination. The Government has said Covid-status certificates could be used at theatres, nightclubs and festivals from June. They could be used to prove if a person has been vaccinated, has had a recent negative test or has natural immunity. But some industry figures say they have "deep concerns" over the proposals. I concur.
