Leyland Society Gatherings

The Leyland Society Gathering Sunday 7th July 2019 at British Commercial Vehicle Museum, Leyland

As you will be aware, the British Commercial Vehicle Museum in Leyland has undergone a major refurbishment in 2018 with assistance from a Heritage Lottery Grant and we therefore had to temporarily relocate our Gathering to the Crich Tramway Museum.  By the time you read this issue of Torque, the Museum will have reopened to the public once again and we have therefore decided that for 2019 we should return to our spiritual home of Leyland, holding our Gathering at the Museum.      

The date for the event has been confirmed as Sunday 7th July and we are grateful that the Museum have included our event in their planned events for 2019.  An entry form is included with this issue of Leyland Society Torque should you wish to send your entry in the New Year.  Last year we welcomed vehicles from all Leyland Group manufacturers (eg AEC, Albion, BMC, Bristol, Guy, Scammell) and we would be happy to accept any of these marques again in 2019, although preference will be given to Leyland manufactured or designed models.  We assume that most vehicles will travel there on the day but for those travelling longer distances the Museum have offered overnight parking in their courtyard overnight on Saturday.  The parking will be at the owner’s risk but if you wish to take advantage of this offer please complete the section on your entry form so we can advise the Museum of your requirement.  To allow Society members to experience the new British Commercial Vehicle Museum we have negotiated a discount on the normal entry price to the museum on the day and we will publish details of how to obtain the special price in Torque nearer the time.

We hope as many members as possible will bring their Leylands to the event.  If you wish to enter more than one vehicle, please copy the form or download another copy from the Society website,  We realise that you are reading this at the end of 2018 and it is early to decide on which events you may wish to attend in 2019 but if you can return your form as soon as possible it would be appreciated so we have an idea of the number of vehicles to expect.  If you are not a vehicle owner but know someone who owns a Leyland Group vehicle, then please encourage them to attend by giving them the form included with this issue of Torque.  Please include up to date contact details on your entry form so that we are able to contact you in the event of any last-minute changes.  If you have an e-mail address, please include that on your entry form.  We guarantee that e-mail addresses provided will only be used in relation to the Gathering and not for any other purpose.
