Sheringham & District Branch, The Royal British Legion - Branch Caravan
Sheringham is a thriving branch of the Royal British Legion and to enable us to have a more public presence we now have a Royal British Legion Caravan.
Since the one detailed below, we have been lucky enough to raise funds to purchase a much newer caravan, with the normal seating, kitchen and toilet facilities inside. We have added logos to the outside, but kept it very low key and use notice boards and flags to draw more attention. This caravan only has The Royal British Legion with logos on the outside, as this means that other branches can make use of it should they need to.
If any other branch would like to use the Caravan for raising the profile of their Branch, please use the contact form on the contact us page. We do not make a formal charge for use, but do ask for a donation to help us to cover repair and 'MOT' charges.
The Caravan comes fully equipped with trestle tables, flags, large poppies and a selection of brochures in leaflet dispensers.
Notice Boards feature Sheringham & District Branch Information, but this could be covered if necessary. There are No Chairs.
It is a fully functioning caravan with toilet facilities, heating and water.
Any Branch wishing to use the caravan should apply to the Branch Secretary. There is no charge, but a donation towards its upkeep would be appreciated and the person borrowing the caravan would be entirely responsible for repair/replacement of anything damaged whilst in their care. The caravan itself is covered under RBL Insurance if being used for official RBL functions.
The caravan below was kindly donated to the Branch, originally for us to use the chassis to build our Carnival Float on, as our old one was beyond repair.
On closer inspection of the caravan, Geoff Tucker, one of our more active members said that it was in a reasonable condition and that we could possibly convert it into a mobile HQ. This would enable us to have a more visible presence and a place people could sit and chat. A focal point for information about the Branch and indeed the Royal British Legion as a whole.
After agreement from the Branch, Geoff then began the transformation, with the aim of getting it ready for Poppy Appeal 2009. Below are some of then photographs taken during this process.
