It doesn’t matter if you can’t tell a Bristol from a Leyland, or thought Cliff Richard drove a Routemaster in “Summer Holiday”.
The museum is always looking for new members. Would you like to join us? Anoraks are not compulsory! In fact, I don’t think any member of the museum possesses one. All we want are people who are enthusiastic about preserving vintage buses and coaches. It doesn’t matter if you can’t tell a Bristol from a Leyland, or thought Cliff Richard drove a Routemaster in “Summer Holiday”. Do you have any skills such as a mechanical background, have you worked in the bus industry, do you have any skills that might be bus related, or do you simply want to get involved with us? If so, get in touch. Most Sunday mornings you’ll find members working away in some form or other. Come in and have a chat. If you’re too far flung to take an active, everyday interest in the museum, we’d still like to have you on board. Members receive a free quarterly magazine, “The Enterprise” which keeps you up to date with goings on in the museum. We even have a member living in Australia, so no excuses! Come and do your bit to preserve public transport of The Isle of Wight. Go to page 7, print out the application form there and send it to Richard Newman, our membership secretary. You won’t regret it. (Too much!) We can also accept online payments for membership via PayPal.
Would you know where to start? I certainly wouldn't, but that didn't stop me becoming a member of the museum.
