This show is organised & run by the Royston & District Motorcycle Club who are one of our sponsors this year.

Held in the grounds of Meldreth Special School, near Royston in Hertfordshire, at their horse riding facility.

The proceeds from the show go towards the horse riding centre.

We arrived at 17.00 to set up the stand with the weather not knowing which way to go.

First of all we were given this spot then moved to that spot & eventually back to the first place right in the centre of the paddock. Putting the Gazebo up is getting very easy now days as everyone has done it a few times.

Then as usual kettle on for a brew, talk about old men?????? 

At 18.00 the public started to arrive & if you’ve never been to this evening show you would be amazed at how many people turn up. 

This show is actually in Cambridgeshire & Ian Westlake from Suffolk & Cambridgeshire SERV was on the stand with us & he seemed to get most of the inquiries----there’s a surprise. 

Halfway through the evening Craig Sifleet said he recognised this bloke walking passed it was Steve Parrish ex-bike racer & now Moto GP commentator. He lives very local at Steeple Morden. Anyway we managed to get him to sit on our bike for some photos. 

A good evening enjoyed by all, thanks to Derek Harrington, Roy Snelling, Alan Wilkinson, Neil Langley, Dave Wilson, John Wigglesworth, Craig Sifleet & Sheri. As well as Ian Westlake from Suffolk & Cambridgeshire.
