City of Portsmouth Preserved Transport Depot (CPPTD), one of
three separate bus preservation centres in Hampshire /
West Sussex administered by the Working Omnibus Museum
Project Ltd., a registered charity no. 1020411.
If you are interested in old buses and are a “hands-on
and get mucky” sort of person, CPPTD could be just your
kind of society! Alternatively, if you do not wish, or
are unable, to offer physical help we will be just as
pleased to welcome you, and your subscription will be
equally as valuable.
For your annual subscription you will receive at least 4
issues of our magazine, “BSBS”, which will keep you
informed of progress on the vehicles and depots as well
as news of other preservation projects, the whereabouts
of old Portsmouth and Southdown buses, articles and
details of tours, visits and other social events.
Taxpayers can help us considerably by completing the
Gift Aid declaration form to enable us to reclaim tax
paid by you on your donations for as long as the Gift
Aid scheme lasts.
A proportion of your subscription will go towards
preservation projects and the upkeep of the vehicles and
depots, as well as the purchase of essential tools and
equipment. You will also have the satisfaction of
knowing that, by your financial, practical and moral
support, items of importance in local road passenger
transport history are being restored to working order
and preserved for posterity.
The costs of moving our collection of vehicles and
artefacts, not to mention tools, paint, workbenches and
spares, out of storage and into Wicor Farm, has been
considerable, and the support and help of the Membership
is now more vital than ever. It is essential that we
keep alive the spirit of the City of Portsmouth
Preserved Transport Depot! We firmly believe that our
hobby should be educational, stimulating, enjoyable and
rewarding, but, above all, FUN, and we have always tried
to reflect this in our style of operation.
