Helper Needed For Billy Bulb

Billy Bulb

 Bognor Regis Town Council is seeking a volunteer to tow the mascot, Billy Bulb.
Billy Bulb was devised and built over 35 years ago, soon after the Illuminated Gala started in the Town. Constructed of fibreglass, Billy sits on a trailer which allows him to take part in parades as well as static events. Restoration over the past year has restored Billy to his former glory.

The Town Council would like to ensure that Billy gets out and about and is therefore seeking a volunteer to tow him in the 2 main Bognor Regis events of the year; the Carnival and the Illuminations Gala. The Council would also like Billy to travel a little further afield and take part in both the Littlehampton and Chichester Carnivals.
Could you spare some time each year to collect and then tow Billy in these events?
The only requirement is that the driver has the correct category on their licence and their vehicle insurance company confirms that the activity is covered by their own insurance.

The Council will be making a small budgetary provision to cover expenditure, such as the cost of the fuel, for each outing.

If anyone can assist with getting Billy to these annual events, or would like more information, please contact Mrs Sarah Norman at Bognor Regis Town Council. The phone number is 01243 825535 or email
