Why become a Member of the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft?

We hope you like our Museum, what it does and what it stands for. We are continually striving to make improvements to the attractions we offer our visitors and to the infrastructure of the Museum. Once restored to their original glory, our trolleybuses need day-to-day maintenance. We also have an archive of material relating to these vehicles and the social history of their golden era.

You don’t have to be a volunteer to help the Museum – although we would love it if you did! Another way to support our endeavours is by becoming a member of the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft. You would actually become a member of the Museum Company, Sandtoft Transport Centre Limited. It’s a simple process and costs £19.00 a year (additional adults living at the same address can join for just £12.00 per year and are termed “Family Members”). For £12.00 each per year we enrol under-18s to be supporters of the Museum as “Sandtoft Juniors”. Full details of membership subscription rates are shown below.

Once a member, you are entitled to:

  • Free admission to the Museum on open days
  • A copy of our in-house magazine Sandtoft Scene, published three times a year (please note family members receive one copy only of the magazine sent to their registered address)
  • Attend and vote at the AGM and any other general meetings of the Company.

“Sandtoft Juniors” are entitled to:

  • Free admission to the Museum on open days
  • Their own copy of our in-house magazine Sandtoft Scene
  • For legal reasons, under-18s are not entitled to vote at Company general meetings.

How to join

Simply pick up a membership application form when at the Museum – we’re also happy to upgrade your admission ticket to membership – or alternatively, download a PDF version here . Then, just return the completed form to to the address shown with the appropriate subscription (and a donation if you’re feeling generous!). Cheques should be made payable to “The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft” but at the Museum payment can also be in cash or by credit/ debit card.

A membership card and the latest edition of Sandtoft Scene will then be issued to you.
