Motorcycles out in force for Wheels-next-the-Sea

More than 400 motorcycles roared into Wells yesterday for the third annual Wheels-next-the-Sea event.

It was held on Beach Road playing field and featured competitions in different motorcycle classes, trade stands and live music.

Representatives from The Royal British Legion Riders Branch attended and recruited new members.

Greg Hewitt from the show's organising committee said: 'Despite the heavy rain we've had a good turnout of people and I'd like to thank everyone for coming along in such awful weather.

'We've only been doing this for three years now but I feel that it has become a key event in Wells.

'It's not just for bikers, we get lots of people from the town wandering in and having a look around too.

'And the show raises money for the Wells Scout Activity Centre. We usually raise about �1,800 per year.'

He added: 'It's great to see how this event is getting bigger and more popular every year. If it hadn't been for the rain I think we could have had as many as 900 bikes here today.'
