Wells will become a sea of shining chrome and metal when the town hosts its first motorcycle show.

Hundreds of motorbikes and

their proud owners are expected to converge on the seaside town in

June when the event is staged on the Beach Road playing field.

It is being organised on similar lines to the successful annual

classic bike show staged at Wimbotsham, near Downham Market, and will see all proceeds going towards the 1st Wells Sea Scouts.

A small group involved with the Scouts is organising the event.

Spokesman Greg Hewitt said

that, weather permitting, there

could be up to 500 bikes on show

from vintage machines to more contemporary models.

It is also planned to have trade and dealer stands and a prize for the

best bike.

"Some of the people involved

in running the Scout group have bikes and we all went to last year's event at Wimbotsham and thought

it would be a cracking idea to

stage something similar in Wells,"

said Mr Hewitt.

"If the first event on June 21 is successful, we hope it can become an annual feature in the town," he added.

Admission to the day-long event will be �1 per wheel.
