Volunteers are needed at Banbury railway station to make sure people are sticking to the social distancing and face mask Covid-19 regulations.

Volunteering Matters, supported by the Department for Transport, is looking to create voluntary roles called 'Journey Makers' to 'support and encourage people' as they adjust to the new ways of travelling.

A spokesperson for Volunteering Matters said: "They need friendly, approachable volunteers to welcome people at selected rail and bus stations, helping them to think of the social distancing guidelines and reassuring anyone anxious about travelling.

"The programme will last for six weeks and we are particularly looking for volunteers for Banbury Station, Monday to Friday between 7am and 10am.Volunteers do not have to cover every day."
