The Rolls-Royce Trust in Bristol aim to preserve the amazing heritage of aero engine design, development and production in our region. They are having a recruitment drive. You do not need to have been an employee of Rolls to join. Membership is open to all with an interest in local aviation history. Annual subscription is only £8 per annum for which you receive their excellent bi-annual journal, several local evening lectures and the opportunity to view, or even work on maintaining the local exhibition of aviation artefacts (mainly engines). An application can be downloaded from their website www.Rolls-Royce.com/about/ourstory/heritage_trust/support/. Please consider joining as the Rolls-Royce Company has been, and continues to be, a major wealth earner in our local economy to whom we owe a debt of gratitude. It is not all history, last nights excellent lecture was a presentation by Ric Parker head of Rolls-Royce plc Advanced Engineering about future developments looking forward as far as 2050.
