Transport

Interested in learning about the impact, history and technology of transport, in all its forms? If so,this group is for you! For an illustration please click Past Activities.

Just come and join us! We provide the opportunity for you to learn how all aspects of transport have evolved and how it's shaped our lives, in so many ways. As an aside, you may also at any time, wish to share your knowledge and reminiscence, although, only if you choose so to do. Not compulsory!

There are also a number of small sub-groups that meet informally, to share in the study of specific topics and/or the organisation of trips. These are:
Model Engineering
Rail Roving
Vehicle Technology
Wartime Airfields

Our Transport Group meets for 2.30pm start, on the 3rd Monday of the month, at Ely Bowls Club, Nutholt Lane, Ely CB7 4PL. The Group Coordinators are: Peter Lee (tel 649417) and Carol Trigg, supported by a team, who are; Rob Barter (treasurer), Jane Wicks (refreshments), Rowland Wells (outings) and Colin George (website page editor).
