Bikers gather for 23rd rally and raise charity cash
More than 4,000 people packed into a tiny village for its annual classic bike show on Bank Holiday Monday.
There were Triumphs and Nortons, BSAs and Harleys on the playing fields at Wimbotsham Primary school, near Downham Market.
Paula Banks, one of the organisers, said there were 190 bikes taking part in the event, which was celebrating its 23rd year.
'There were a few of us in the village pub with nothing to do over a bank holiday,' she said. 'We thought if we cam make a couple of hundred to cover our costs, great.'
