Sunday 14th January 2018 Leigh

All these activities take place between 10.00 am. and 4.00 pm. at Leigh on the Sundays in question unless otherwise stated.

In order to dispel a myth it is not necessary to have qualifications in engineering or great skill in DIY or bus repair techniques in order to help out at one of our working days and the invitation is therefore open to all members who wish to come along and join us to help in pursuing further achievements.  Most of the work is relatively routine and down to earth, such as sanding down, scrubbing, cleaning and painting, and these basic fundamental factors probably relate to approximately 70% of the work undertaken.

Any member who wants to come down to help out in any of these basic functions is more than welcome to do so.  Obviously if we have any members who have any DIY skills then we would welcome meeting them as they can perhaps become involved in the remaining 30% of activities such as drilling, screwing, riveting, repairing and replacing.

Taking part in rectification of vehicles is not a great skills bestowed on relatively few individuals; it is a task that can be accomplished quite easily by any members, should they wish to participate.  We do hope that we will see a considerable number of our members come along to help out in whatever way they wish on some of the working days listed above, between 10.00 am. and 4.00 pm.  If you wish to have a chat about potential input please don't hesitate to ring our membership secretary on 0161-736 9899.  Alternatively you can make contact by e-mailing us at


The following are the proposed rallies, road runs and shows we intend to be involved in during the calender year of 2017. We should make it clear that any member of the SELNEC Preservation Society, who subscribes by paying their membership fee and receiving these newsletters is perfectly entitled not only to attend our premises in Leigh to look at the vehicles, but to take part in any of the aforementioned rallies, road runs and shows listed below.  These are not events just for our Trustees or working members, but for any member who chooses to come along. 

Should any member therefore be interested in attending one of these events either from the start point in Leigh where most of them commence from, or by arrangement being collected at a mutually convenient place between Leigh and the rally event, then they should contact the Membership Secretary on 0161 736 9899 or e-mailing us at

The departure times shown are estimated and vehicles may leave earlier or later (they may even leave from an alternative starting point) so if you are planning to attend it would be wise to check the departure details during the week preceding the event by calling 0161 736 9899. 

The dates for the the calendar year 2017 are as follows:- 

SELNEC will not be planning any events in the immediate future. Please return for updates.
