A top transport museum has reopened with the help of a £50,000 grant from the National Lottery Emergency Fund. Amberley Museum, which has a fine collection of early Southdown buses, had to be closed for four months, and cancelled its show programme for this year. It has now been able to re-open, and will operate the buses on site over the weekend of 18-19 September.

The grant will help cover costs over the next few months to support opening during a period described as one of ‘serious financial challenges’ by Director Valerie Mills.
