Our Partnerships

Collaboration is key to building good relationships with other groups & businesses. We enable and support partnerships between other groups in the same sector.

We have core relationships with many organisations and are always looking at ways we can work with new partners. Below is a list of organisations we work with. If you are interested in partnering with us or if you simply want to receive updates on what we are doing, please get in touch.

Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust

We have close affiliations with Ribble (RVPT). They have supported us and helped us in the best ways possible over the past few years to achieve our ambitions. They have in the past donated and offered us vehicles that they feel would be better suited with us at Town & district as we have the time & expertees to restore these vehicles in a timescale that may have been otherwise unachieveable while at at RVPT such as the Standerwick Gay Hostess Leyland Atlantean, so we are thankful for them being there to help us & of course we help them when ever we can.

Please visit www.RVPT.co.uk to see more about them & what they do.

National Association of Road Transport Museums (NARTM)

NARTM was formed over 40 years ago, bringing together folk who had as individuals or as a small group taken the initiative to care for examples of their local public transport heritage.  A key role of NARTM is to support the continuity of care of this heritage as society changes and the pioneers are no longer as active as they were. Town & District are proud to be a part of the organisation, especially as we are still a new group and trying to become bigger. Please visit www.nartm.org.uk to see more on what they do.
