2015: A record year for the Trust

  2015 was an amazing, record breaking year for the Trust and its Supporters. Counting our own events and the many others attended by our vehicles, we have recorded 20,692 passenger journeys. Many more will have seen and enjoyed our vehicles in action, having covered a total of 19,430 miles during 239 vehicle days on the road.

We organised several major public events including our annual vintage bus running days in Penzance and Kingsbridge, the Royal Blue and Associated Motorways long-distance coach run and, of course, our Thames Valley centenary celebrations. We also worked closely with South Devon Railway and Didcot Railway Centre to support their events with free bus services and displays.

Add to this our restoration work (in particular our current major projects, the 1927 Leyland Lion PLSC3 and 1965 Bristol FLF6B, both former Southern National vehicles); our eight group visits plus external talks and slideshows; and our ongoing work in our archives.

Such results can only be achieved with the help of our volunteers and 2015 was the year we launched our Supporters' Group for those who help us in the work we're doing. If you haven't already signed up, we hope you will consider joining in 2016. For a charitable donation to the Trust of 22, more if you wish, you will receive our much-praised quarterly magazine "To and Fro'" plus news of our Supporters' Days and work parties in the new year, along with other exclusive benefits.

A huge 'thank you' if you've helped us this year, and here's to a successful and enjoyable 2016.
