We intend to have vehicle displays at two further events this year:

·         Classic Van & Pick-Up Show at the British Commercial Vehicle Museum at King Street, Leyland on Sunday 26th July.  This is a new event and we hope that our members with preserved GPO and Post Office Vehicles will bring them to Leyland.  More details about the event on the museum’s website www.britishcommercialvehiclemuseum.com or by telephoning 01772-451011.

·         We will be at Gaydon on Sunday 9th August for the other Classic Van & Pick Up Show on Sunday 9th August with a larger display of preserved GPO and Post Office vehicles including a Morris Minivan telephone van, Morris J2 telephone van, several Morris Minors and BSA Bantams.  More details at www.heritage-motor-centre.co.uk/event/classic-van-and-pickup-show/

 

If you want to enter a vehicle at either show, please do via the entry forms on the websites above.  If you need help or further information on these shows, or general assistance with preserved GPO and Post Office vehicles, please contact our Archivist Mark Skillen on 01433-670200 (evenings and weekends) or write to him at Ollerbrook Barn, Edale, Hope Valley, S33 7ZG.
