WINTER DRAW 2013
Draw tickets have been sent out to all members and we hope that you can return them with your remittance and/or perhaps a donation. The appeal this year is in aid of the AEC Airport Bus which is being used as a reception area for the Concorde Experience and as such is very much in the public eye....but it is in very poor condition and in need of renovation.

Brooklands is the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation and also the site of many engineering and technological achievements through eight decades of the 20th century.
The Brooklands Museum Trust is an independent charitable trust established in 1987, whose aim is to conserve, protect and interpret the unique heritage of the Brooklands site.
The Brooklands Trust Members are the official support group for the Museum and that support is invaluable in helping to realise the Trust's objectives and keep the Museum running, whilst also offering many benefits to the Members themselves, including free entry to the Museum.

"Thoroughly enjoy the Museum. Thank you to everyone who makes it such a great experience"
Sarah Lomas-Clarke BTM Family Member 2012/13
"We have had a lovely year visiting the Museum and the children have had a lovely time (although the car ride on the slope was one of the scariest experiences of my life as a parent!). The staff have been wonderful and made every visit enjoyable - even though my 6 year old thinks he knows it all now as he has been so many times!" Nicola Fawcett (BTM Family Member 2012/13)
