Tramway Museum Society Appoints New President

Published on Wednesday 6 September 2023

The Tramway Museum Society (TMS) which owns and operates the National Tramway Museum at Crich Tramway Village, has appointed a new President for the next year.


The Society was founded in 1955. Its founding members converted a disused quarry, located to the north of the village of Crich in Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District, into the fledgling Crich Tramway Museum. The Society became a registered charity in 1962, and Crich Tramway Museum expanded and grew its collection, eventually becoming the National Tramway Museum in 1980.

Sue Whiteley has taken over the reins from Bob Pennyfather, the previous president.

Each year The Tramway Museum Society Board members nominate a new president to officiate at special events and attend meetings which help to guide the direction of the Society.

Sue Whiteley, from Macclesfield, has been a volunteer at Crich since 1997 and a conductor since 2002.

Sue started as a volunteer in the Workshop alongside husband Peter, and they both volunteer regularly maintaining the trams as well as crewing together.

Asked what she likes most about her volunteering role, Sue said:

“I actually like cleaning the trams. It gives you a great sense of satisfaction when you can see a positive result.”

Sue is looking forward to her role as TMS President and is already organising her diary to commit to the role, which she will combine with her continued commitment to other duties at the Museum.

Chairman of the Tramway Museum Society, Karen Rigg, said:

“We are very pleased to welcome Sue as our President to represent the Society for the coming year and I look forward to working closely with her”.
