    Skilled volunteers are eager to impart their knowledge and skills in rebuilding, repairing and servicing vintage buses.

This Museum is a not-for-profit organisation first established in 1986 that helps to preserve a rare, and invaluable collection of historic buses dating from the 1920s to 1980s. This organisation has continued to exist for over 25 years thanks to their entirely voluntary workforce, who ensure their vehicles are regularly made available for various community and charitable events.

They are looking to recruit mechanical tradesmen, auto electricians, electricians, carpenters to get involved in rebuilding reclaimed vintage buses and in servicing and repairing them to road-worthy working order.

The principal skill required is to be able to use tools and work with metals and mechanical/ electrical components.
