Legion will take new trailer to events

THE county branch of the Royal British Legion has a new trailer which it will be taking out and about to events.

The trailer was created to a specific design and includes a DVD and CD player with a screen, a coffee table, comfy chairs and a breakfast bar.

The idea is to make it a suitable and welcoming base where people can go along and speak to members to find out more about the Legion and its work.

The trailer will be taken out to events such as shows and fetes during the summer.

Royal British Legion county secretary Allan Short said: “The idea is to use it as many times in a year as we can to promote the Royal British Legion and to raise awareness.”

County chairman Bill Rose said having the trailer would help to spread the word about what the Legion does.

He said: “There are so many people who need our help and are entitled to our help and are not aware of us.

“We will take the trailer to large events, small events, county shows, fetes and open days.”
