Highbridge bikers in special Easter fundraising drive

Dozens of motorcyclists, some dressed in Easter costumes, took part in a fundraising bike run from Highbridge to Minehead on Easter Day (April 4th).

Somerset Motorcycle Group oversaw the special event, which started from Highbridge's Bristol Bridge Inn on the A38.

The convoy of 25 bikers then wended their way through Bridgwater before they headed out along the coast to Minehead.

The event was held to raise money for Burnham-On-Sea rescue hovercraft charity BARB towards the £60,000 cost of buying its new craft.

"The day went very well and attracted a good turnout of riders from across the region and as far afield as Taunton and Bristol. Several motorcyclists joined us during the route and we were warmly welcomed into Minehead," said organiser Norman Templeman.

Another bike run is scheduled for Sunday May 9th from Highbridge to Weymouth. To sign up, call Norman on 07759 907514.
