[19 JAN 99] MUSEUM OF BRITISH ROAD TRANSPORT PRESS RELEASE
Museum Launches Friends Scheme

The Museum of British Road Transport in Coventry has announced its intention to launch a friends scheme. The scheme will offer the opportunity for people to give voluntary support to different aspects of the Museum’s work including acting as guides, giving specialist technical support etc. In addition those who just wish to become Social Friends of the Museum will be fully catered for.

Councillor Arthur Waugh, Chairman of the Museum’s Board said,

"The British motor industry has generated a huge number of highly skilled people and I have frequently been asked if there is a way that individuals can help support the Museum. The Friends scheme will offer a whole range of voluntary and social opportunities and I believe that there is a mass of talent out there that could bring enormous benefits for the Museum’s future. For example, the opportunity for schoolchildren to hear, first hand, what it was like to work in a car factory will help to reinforce the engineering excellence that has been a watchword in Coventry for over a century now. We have already had a significant response to the scheme since we published it in our Christmas newsletter and, hopefully, this public launch of the scheme will attract many more interested parties."

It is intended that, once people have registered their interest in becoming a ‘Friend’, the museum will hold a public meeting to highlight al of the opportunities available and to start creating the type of organisation Friends wish to belong to.

Anyone interested in becoming a Friend is asked to either write to Barry Littlewood, the Managing Director of the Museum in St. Agnes Lane, hales Street, or registering their interest by phone on Coventry 832425. They will then be advised of the date of the public meeting which it is anticipated will take place in either February or March.
