JEC Oxfordshire Visits Long Hanborough Bus Museum with a record attendance

32 members, friends and relatives had a great day out to the Long Hanborough Transport,Bus and Morris Motors Museum on Wednesday 20th February. Graced with exceptional good weather, the visit commenced with a very pleasant lunch, combining good food and great service, at the nearby George & Dragon Pub to which we will undoubtedly return.

It was really pleasing too to welcome some 8 new faces and no less than 6 couples. Best of all, 10 year old Charlie attended with his grandparents and went away with a book about Buses. Good thing that he apparently loves buses !

The Region Members cars' were a credit to them whether an XK140, a Daimler, an XKR, either of the E Types of 'just' the Chairman's XF. Naturally, they complemented the range of 30s to 80s buses and Morris Minors etc. to perfection. It was also great to be able to unfurl our new Region flags for the first time.

As well toueing the extensive Museum buildings and stepping onto and off a number of different buses, some of our members timed it right to actually go out on a bus. In contrast, others, even after their lunches, dug into the tea and cake provided by the Museum.

JEC Oxfordshire Region had a great time at the Museum and recommend it to all and sundry. Our thanks go to Paul Statham and his team for making us so welcome and coping with such an influx of enthusiasts.
