RBL's Byng House gets new bus

THE Royal British Legion (RBL) at Byng House, on The Promenade, Southport, have taken delivery of a brand new bus. Following months of fund fundraising, this specially designed bus will help them take members, both local and visiting, to and from events. Hollie Webster, Entertainment Coordinator for Byng House said:- "We have finally got our new bus. We would like to thank everyone who helped raise funds to get it. It was fantastic to see as it as it arrived on 26 April 2016. As we got the first glimpse of it heading down the road to us, the rain stopped and the sun came out. It's fully marked up with our logos and even our address on it! We hope that this vehicle will do just that for years to come, putting a shine on everyone's faces who use it." The silver Versa, designed by Optare, in Leeds, is fitted out with many applications and offers lots of features, from specially designed layout to brand new cameras that will improve safety, comfort and reliability. It's now hoped that the new bus will help the Legion's break centre offer its guests and local branch member lots more urban and countryside outings. If you see it passing, please do give them a wave!
