Give as you Live (http://www.giveasyoulive.com/royalbritishlegion) is an easy way to give - it's free to use and there is no cost involved to the Legion.

Shop online and Give as you Live retailers will donate a percentage of each purchase made to us. The average retailer will donate 2.5% of each purchase.

How does it work?

Sign-up with Give as you Live, download the software/plug-in, then shop as you would normally.

When you have downloaded the Give as You Live software, your computer will remember that you have signed up to the scheme every time you visit a partner website. If you are a regular shopper, you could raise hundreds of pounds for us!

The Royal British Legion takes care of millions of ex-servicemen and their dependents worldwide and depends on the generosity of the public.  Your shopping will not cost you any more, but a percentage of your purchases will go directly to The Royal British Legion.

Please help.  Thank You.

Bodham Energy and Sustainability Together (BEST)

is an independent group of local people from Bodham, Holt, Sheringham and other surrounding parishes to support the application for a wind turbine at Pond Farm, Bodham.

The application, submitted by West Beckham based Genatec Renewables Ltd, for the 86.5m turbine (60m hub height) would generate on average enough electricity to power 660 average sized homes. In local terms this would be enough to power Bodham, West Beckham, Gresham, Matlask, Baconsthorpe and Plumstead (based on 2001 census data).

In addition to the clean, green energy that this turbine would produce, if the application is successful our local communities would benefit from 100,000 of investment over the 25 year life of the turbine. This would be split between local churches, ecology and biodiversity projects, and the replanting of 3000meters of hedging and the planting of 5000Sq meters of woodland and the re-instatement of ponds.

Callum Ringer, spokesman for B.E.S.T said, "If approved, this application would have significant benefits to the local area. We have spoken to hundreds of local people, and there is a great deal of support out there for this project. We really need as many people to speak up and send their message of support to the District Councils planning department".

The Project, which has already received support from both North Norfolk Green Party and the North Norfolk Labour Party will be decided by North Norfolk District Council Development Control Committee in March or April 2012.
