On Sunday, May 1st, Watton High Street was jammed, not with any old traffic, but with over 1000 magnificent machines. There was a fantastic display as bikers from all over Norfolk brought their bikes along for everyone to admire.

The event was run jointly by the King’s Arms pub and Watton Town Council who were both thrilled with the day. Harvey Woodyatt, landlord of the Kings Arms said “I was blown away by the support of the event, by both the bikers and the towns folk. It was a pleasure working with Watton Town Council and my staff to arrange this event. I hope we can do it, or something similar again soon.”

Councillor Pat Warwick attended and said “We were amazed at the turnout, what a brilliant, colourful display. It’s fantastic to see so many motorbikes in one place, and to meet so many enthusiastic fans.”

The High Street was closed for the day so that there was plenty of room for bikes and visitors including the Blood Bikes and Police Road Safety Reduction Team who were spreading the word about their ‘Safe Rider’ course.
