 You can help with running our events

From time to time we arrange events that all bus enthusiasts and members of the public can join in with. Often these involve a rally of preserved buses and coaches, some of which then give free rides on routes around the local area. We welcome the involvement of our members in delivering these events. You can volunteer to be a conductor on the buses, sell programmes, marshal vehicles, assist at the Control tent and so forth. It's fun and a great way to meet other Society members.
