Great to see local taxi driver, Raymond Swan, and his son, Charlie, in Parliament today! He was celebrating winning an award in the Parliamentary Taxi and Private Hire Awards 2023, run by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Taxis and Private Hire.
Ray does an outstanding job with his local taxi business, ‘Swans Taxis’ and is just an all round good bloke. He is a well-known and respected local driver, operating in Consett for almost 20 years
The Awards are judged by the APPG and their chairman, Labour MP Daniel Zeichner and recognise drivers from across the country who consistently go above and beyond the call of duty in service of their local community.
It was so nice to catch up with him and Charlie after the awards to celebrate and have a chat about all things North West Durham.
Well done Ray!
