The Western Isles
Transport Preservation Group (WITPG) was established in the year 2000 by
a small group of transport enthusiasts who were keen to safeguard the
transport heritage of the Outer Hebrides.
Since then the
organisation has enjoyed a growing membership that has sponsored or
arranged a number of well attended and highly commended public events,
such as the recent visit to the isles
of the prestigious West Coast Run.
One of the principle
aims of the WITPG is to record and preserve the oral, written and
photographic history of motorised transport within the islands. In
tandem with this, several vehicle restoration projects are underway. We
also hope to find suitable premises in the future that will allow us to
better carry out this important work and improve public access to
research and exhibition material.
Throughout the year,
WITPG arrange regular talks, slide & video shows, workshops and visits
to mainland events, such as the annual Bedford Reunion.
