The centre of Littleport resounded to the sound of music – and – motorbikes – as the Bike Show hit the village last month. And it was all for a good cause as The Crown Inn, the famous public house on Main Street along with 363 MCC the well known motorbike club were hosting this yearly event in an alldayer that raised much needed funds for the East Anglia Air Ambulance and Branching Out; ‘supporting people with learning difficulties in the community’.
“I waived my usual fee of course as I believe everyone did”, said lead singer Andy Stewart of the VT11, one of the many bands such as Bondy, Dead Horse, Smudj and Phil Crawford who were performing that day.
Littleport people came out in their droves to hear the music, see the bikes and enjoy some good cooked food, and have a drink or two, alcoholic or other. The kiddies who were allowed in free, were also well catered for. They enjoyed doughnuts, ice cream and plenty of activities from bouncy castles to face painting etc. All this was made possible thanks to the events suppliers and sponsors from Sharmans Garden Centre, Langford’s Hog Roast & BBQ, Cambridgeshire Acre, Crown Garage, Ant’s Driving School, and the Littleport Steakhouse.
363 MCC and the Crown Inn were just delighted with the massive turn out and the support this event received and told Littleport Life’s Roving Reporter Cathy Gibb that they had raised over £1500 for their two chosen charities.
