Bideford Carnival 2023

Bideford Carnival xplosion dance cheer 3

Evans Transport is proud to have provided the vehicle for the Xplosion Dance and Cheer group to perform on during the Bideford Carnival. The group, which consists of children of all ages, put on a spectacular performance, and Evans Transport was delighted to be able to help them make it happen.

The truck was driven by Richard Palmer, who has been with Evans Transport for two and a half years. Richard takes a lot of pride in his vehicle, and it showed at the carnival. The truck was beautifully decorated, and Richard was a great ambassador for Evans Transport.

Richard has also won three commendations at recent truck shows for how well he looks after his vehicle. These are:

  • 1st – Devon truck show in May – highly commended
  • 2nd – Cornwall truck show in July – highly commended
  • 3rd – Truckfest South west September – highly commended

Evans Transport is a local company that is committed to supporting the local community. We are proud to have been able to help the Xplosion Dance and Cheer group with their performance at the Bideford Carnival. We wish them all the best for the future. If you want to see what they are up to then you can find them on Facebook here

Road Safety Campaign

Evans Transport Honest Truth R

Evans Transport have teamed up with the Honest Truth Campaign and Devon and Cornwall Police Crime Commissioner to try and help make the roads safer.

Full backdoor images have been placed on the rear of trailers and vehicles with simple messages to promote road safety.

The messages are trying to reiterate that undertaking these actions could result in death on the road.

With people having to follow our vehicles on major roads we are hoping they will see these messages and it will sink in and make them think twice before putting their lives and the lives of others at risk.

Avon Fire & Rescue Training with Trucks

Training with Trucks and the Devon Fire Service

This week we had 2 vehicles go into Severn Park Fire and Rescue Training Centre.

We were asked by the training centre if a couple of lorries could be provided for firefighters to look around and understand the layout of them better so they are more prepared to deal with truck related emergencies.

There was a good deal of interaction between the firefighters and drivers with both parties learning more about each other profession.

The trucks and drivers were provided free of charge to the training centre as the company saw this as a worthy cause.

So far the ride has raised over £22,000 for various charities such as Help for Heroes, Devon Air Ambulance and North Devon Hospice.
