Wythall Transport museum is just the ticket for handy volunteers

WYTHALL Transport Museum is appealing for volunteers to help keep the wheels turning at the popular tourist attraction.

The much-loved museum on Chapel Lane, which specialises in buses, is welcoming potential new volunteers from 11am on Saturday, February 10.

In particular, anybody handy with a spanner to help maintain the running fleet and new volunteers to help in the café, shop or admissions areas are all needed.

With a varied fleet spanning most of the 20th Century, Wythall’s buses offer rides during the summer through country towns and villages and are hired for special events.

Museum trustee Dave Taylor, said: “Keeping the wheels turning takes a lot of volunteer resources and we could do with more hands to help spread the load.

“The big advantages of being a craft volunteer are that you can work when you wish and at your own speed.

“Almost every visitor looks forward to a cup of tea or a snack and the café is where they enjoy the social side of the museum, chatting and reminiscing with like-minded people and then browsing the books in the shop.”
