Burnham-On-Sea Halloween bike ride is a roaring success!

Fun-loving members of a Somerset motorcycle club raised money for the Burnham-On-Sea charity that operates the town's rescue hovercrafts during a Halloween-themed bike ride at the weekend.

Members of Mid-Somerset and South Bristol Motorbike Club roared off on their machines dressed in seasonal costumes on Saturday (November 1st) for a ride around Somerset, stopping off at various venues to collect money for BARB, the Burnham Area Rescue Boat.

"We started off on Burnham seafront and then headed out through West Huntspill and beyond. Everyone saw some interesting parts of the county whilst raising money," said the event's organiser, Norman Templeman.

A total of £100 was handed over to BARB, the 16-year-old charity that runs the life-saving Spirit Of Lelaina and Light Of Elizabeth hovercrafts.
