How you can help us

Like any preservation group, what we do is costly and we need all the help we can get.  Find out more about how you can support the work we do.


The Group’s AGM was held at Flowers Hill on 16 March 2014. Officers elected for 2014/5 were: Chairman - Dave Withers, Secretary - Richard Avery, and Treasurer - Ray Fessey.

 The election for the other members of the Executive Committee was keenly contested, with nine candidates competing for five places. Those elected were: Dayley Lawrence, Rob Leighfield, Alan Neale, Lionel Tancock and Paul Tovey.

The Group has provided several photographs from our extensive collection to support an exhibition taking place at Yate Heritage Centre.  The exhibition runs from 27th February until 12th April, is entitled "on the road", and charts the history of road transport in the area.  Opening times are 10.30 to 16.30 hrs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  All members are invited to visit.  For more information, visit the Yate Heritage Centre website.

Members of the group went for the annual new year lunch on Sunday 23rd February at the Old Down Inn at Emborough.  AHU803 provided the transport.
