It’s difficult to ignore - Christmas is coming up fast! 
The festive period is a time for parties and celebrations, so don’t forget to book you Station Taxi so you can get home safely. 
And attending the Christmas Party is just the beginning! There’s all that food preparation, gift buying and getting the house ready for guests. 
Our area has lots of great festive events lined up, helping make the season’s preparations go smoothly and our professional team of drivers can help you get about come rain, snow or shine! Here are some events taking place soon … 
Always a sombre day of the year, Remembrance Sunday falls on 12th November and is a chance for us to remember those brave men and women who fought for our freedom. 
War memorials throughout our area will be the focal point for wreath laying and Remembrance Services. 
You can also wear your 'poppy with pride' as they are in the shops now. 
The scarlet poppy is the symbol of remembrance, a poignant flower that grows along hedgerows and in our meadows during the summer. The significance of the poppy can be traced back to the First World War (1914 to 1918) during which most of the fighting took place in Western Europe and in particularly in Flanders, France. The countryside was blasted by gunfire and swamped by mud, transforming the rural landscape to a brutal battlefield. However, the red Flanders poppies, even with its delicate petals, were resilient and grew in their thousands, flourishing in the blood, mud and shrapnel of no man’s land and between the rows and rows of wooden crosses that marked soldiers’ graves. 
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot! 
The bonfire night season is here and with it lots of firework displays on our area. 
A time for toffee apples, sparklers and woolly hats, our area is alight with bonfire gatherings this October and November. 
But do you why we mark 5th November? What is significant about the date? 
The origins of the date go back to 5th November 1605, when a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament was foiled! 
It’s the spookiest time of year! 
As well as being half term for many of our schools in the area, it’s also Hallowe’en! 
Far from being isolated to 31st October, Hallowe’en is now big business. 
As well as the Trick or Treat tradition, there are lots of scary events for little (and big) witches and wizards! 
A key event is the Hallowe’en Train that will run along the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors Railway from 26th to 29th October. 
And there's lots more taking place in the Ryedale region ... 
All aboard for a weekend when a Ryedale market town goes back in time – the Pickering 1940s Wartime Weekend will wow the crowds on 13th, 14th and 15th October 2017! 
Often regarded as the main event in Pickering’s annual events calendar, the Wartime Weekend includes a packed programme of World War Two and 1940s themed entertainment. While it is run by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway the event has attracted numerous participants, including dancers, singers, parades and ‘fashionistas’. 
Pickering then plays host to fascinating military vehicle exhibitions, history showcases and a number of workshops. 
Following a year of ‘stable rest’, Malton Festival of Racing is back with us on Sunday 17th September. 
The event, formerly called Malton Open Stables Day, is a key date in the local equine calendar, sponsored by Arena Racing Company. 
As the kids go back to school, we know it's going to get busier on the roads. 
That means at peak times, buses and trains will be packed. 
So let Station Taxi take the strain of those journeys that require four wheels!

Living in a rural area such as Ryedale has its advantages: beautiful views, peaceful atmosphere, and a fascinating history. However, it can be diffcult to get about. Station Taxis, along with Totally Socially Locality (Ryedale), have come up with an affordable solution ... 
For many of us, particularly those who don’t own a car or find it hard to get around, the lack of public transport is a concern. 
We’ve teamed up with Jo Oliver, of Totally Socially to develop a new village ‘hopper’ service that will link the village of Langton to Norton and Malton. 
We’ll be running a ‘book and ride’ service from our offices at Malton Railway Station, from Burythorpe to Malton with pick ups at Langton and Birdsall once a day, Monday to Friday, for the cost of just £2.50 per journey.
