Kevan Jones, Member of Parliament for North Durham has congratulated four students from Roseberry Sports & Community College, Pelton, after they were recognised by the Royal Bank of Scotland Personal Finance Education Awards, which is open to all primary & secondary schools in Scotland, England and Wales.
The nominated students have been selected due to the contribution they have made in raising financial awareness as the “Roseberry Money Saving Experts”, printing posters, having ‘drop-in’ sessions with students, and creating animations for the reception area of the college. They have even created their own enterprise business, selling mini body sprays during sports lessons and returning a profit in the process.

THIRTY-TWO students of the Durham Federation will be going on an expedition to Morocco in July this year – something they have described as ‘a trip of a lifetime’, thanks in part to a donation from MP Kevan Jones through his charitable fund at County Durham Community Foundation.
Staff and students from the Fyndoune Community College will have the chance to experience Moroccan culture first hand, interacting with local village children and trekking the desert on camels.

Kevan Jones, Member of Parliament for North Durham, will join Alex Nelson, Stationmaster at Chester-le-Street Railway Station to launch a new report on train services for the town.
Mr. Nelson commissioned the Railway Consultancy to carry out a Station Calls Analysis, and the final report will be launched at the Station at 3pm this Friday, 27 May.
Kevan Jones said, “the report raises a number of concerns about the impact the most recent timetable changes will have, and questions the basis on which the changes were made, and suggests that Chester-le-Street needs a half-hourly peak time service in both directions.
“I hope that by joining with Alex to officially launch the report, we will be able to further promote the need for a much better service in Chester-le-Street, particularly at peak times. I have also provided copies to the Head of Transport at Durham County Council and to the Secretary of State, and will continue to raise this matter with Ministers and Train Operators.”
