Our guest speaker for our meeting on the 2nd March was Bruce Barrett, a third generation of the Barrett family involved in Baravan Caravans.
The first Baravan Caravan was built in 1954 by David and Horace Barrett, Bruce's father and grand father respectively. 
Bruce took us through the timeline of the Baravan business and the move from domestic vans to commercial and residential caravans.
When Bruce retired a few years ago and whilst caravanning with his wife during 2019 in the south-west they discussed what they should do with their current caravan to last them another 10 years.
They thought it would be a great to own one of their family’s Baravans, however none were built with ensuites and to convert an older caravan with all the features currently available in 2020 would be a huge task.
Problem solved, Bruce reregistered the Baravan Caravan name and decided to build the last Baravan from scratch having started in October 2019.
The construction was done in a storage unit opposite Kenn Williams unit where our Rotary gear is stored.  Kenn and others have watched with interest as Bruce has toiled away for many, many hours to build 'THE LAST BARAVAN'.
