Members are invited to the Oxford Bus Museum on Wednesday 16th February, meeting at 10.45am for light refreshments and an introductory talk on the museum before visiting the collections.
The award-winning museum, run exclusively by volunteers, has nearly 60 busses, cars and light vans on display. There are around 40 historic bicycles in the Faulkner Cycle Collection together with a vast array of artifacts relating to public transport in Oxfordshire as well as items rescued from the old Morris Car Works at Cowley.
There will also be an opportunity to view the Restoration Workshops where volunteers carry out restoration and maintenance of vehicles in the collections.
In recent years, following successful grant awards from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the museum has been totally refurbished and expanded; it is astonishing what has been achieved solely by volunteers. The museum was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in 2018 and runs a Young Volunteers work experience scheme for young people interested in museum administration.
The suggested cost will be £10 per person for museum entry and tea/coffee and biscuits on arrival.
Please contact me direct, email email@example.com or mobile 07816 547850 by Wednesday 9th February if you wish to join the museum visit.
The museum is located at: Oxford Bus Museum, Hanborough Rail Station Yard, Main Road, Long Hanborough, Oxfordshire OX29 8LA
On completion of the visit, Covid rules permitting, we will adjourn to the village pub for lunch and a good social get-together!
