RESTORATION UPDATE
A complete restoration working plan on the Bedford is now being worked out, once again Philip will be taking an active part in the restoration. The plan is to split the body from the chassis from the body again and to put the body under wraps outside the barn while the chassis is fully restored. First job will be to fit four new body mounting brackets so we can tow the bus outside. We are making plans to make an application for lottery funding, we should be able to meet the conditins set by the commission the only stumbling block will be we that will have to go through an organization with charitable status.

Lottery Grant
 
We have startes to exlplore the possibility of lottery funding to enable the restoration of 951UVT to continue,without it the estoration will dontinue but at a buch slower pace when funding allows. The Bedford's restoration has suffered allot  over the last few years due to other projects taking priority so help is now urgently neesed. I am going down to Shobdon angain this weekend looking for more bits for the Bedford and my Commer.
