Welcome to the Samuel Ledgard Society

The Samuel Ledgard Society was formed in 1998 at the Rose & Crown Inn, Otley during the second annual reunion of devotees of this well known and much respected bus company.

Reunions are held twice yearly, at Armley during April and Otley on or about the 14th October. A Christmas dinner is also part of the established calendar of events. Outings are in the planning stage, possibly utilising genuine ex-Ledgard vehicles.

The quarterly journal of the Society, "The Chat", is published in March, June, September and December each year.

Founding officers were Barry Rennison, Tony Greaves and Don Bate, all of whom have a wealth of knowledge about the Samuel Ledgard company and plenty of enthusiasm to carry it forward.

For further information please feel free to contact any member of the Committee.
