In the 6th year of the Norfolk Goldwings Light Parade Borough Mayor Cllr Barry Ayres climbed aboard the oldest member of the group, 73 year old Tony Ripper’s, trike for the parade around Hunstanton on Saturday evening.

Accompanied by around thirty decorated Goldwing trikes and bikes, the Mayor braved a bitter wind for this annual event in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Throughout the day members of the Goldwings’ members had mounted a display of their vehicles on the Green inviting the public to vote for the best bike and collecting for the charity. Organiser Paula Penn from Norfolk Goldwings said: “This year we have clubs from Kent, Wales, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and London joining the Norfolk Goldwings for this event and tonight we will be presenting a cheque for just over £2000 that has been collected over the last year to the East Anglian Air Ambulance at Searles Leisure Resort, our weekend base for this event.”

Cllr Ayres said: “It is absolutely brilliant that people give up their time and put on such a splendid show; it is a real spectacle and of course it is for an extremely good cause. I’m very pleased to be here supporting such an important event for Hunstanton and the Air Ambulance.”
