|Keeping old buses alive takes bus loads of time, effort, passion and funds.|
Supporters' Group helps the Trust in a variety of ways. From
assisting with the restoration and maintenance of vehicles
to helping the public at our running days, the Supporters
play a vital role in so many aspects of the Trust's
Supporters’ enthusiasm knows no bounds and working within social distancing rules, Summer 2020 has seen a group unearth, shore up and get rolling former Royal Blue LL 1264 (LTA 893), harnessing help from the local farming community and a Donkey Sanctuary in the process. Having languished in a field near Sidmouth since 1969, 1264 joins the TV&GWOT Collection as the result of a bequest passed on by The Oxford Bus Museum.
The background and full story of the remarkable recovery are recounted in the Autumn 2020 edition of TV&GWOT Supporters’ magazine To and fro’.
Now safe and undercover, it will take its place in TV&GWOT’s restoration projects. If you’d like to find out more, support us in bringing these vehicles back to life, or get involved yourself, see details below of how to become a Supporter.
If you would like to play a part in helping the Trust - however big or small, regular or occasional - the Supporters look forward to welcoming you to the group.
