Sometimes in bus preservation you have to be multi-talented to get things done. A basic skill in metalwork, woodwork, mechanics and glazier springs to mind but there are other things to it as well. Most preservation groups now have a website of some shape of form which has taken the place of the good old fashioned 'News Letter' , after all, why pay 50p or 60p to send something out when you can read exactly the same online with the postage money going to the vehicles themselves? Also, with postage you are limited to how many addresses you have in your address book but once you're on the internet, it's there for all to see WORLDWIDE! Another interesting notion is that when the earliest vehicles in our collection were being constructed, computers filled whole rooms and were very basic - normally running off big reel to reel tapes ala The Italian Job! A RAM was a male sheep, a printer was someone who worked in Wapping, the web was for spiders and a mouse sat in the corner squeaking and eating cheese! Things have certainly moved on since 1973 and continue to do so too. We shall be modernising our sites over the next few months with a lot of help from Nick Moore. This one won't close completely but by the spring, it will stop being updated, most of the information here will be transferred over to a new Southern Counties Omnibus Collection website.
Your support for this website continues to grow and I'm amazed at how many thousands of hits we receive, for this I am truly grateful. We look forward seeing you all on the new site which will introduce new features to our collection too.
