Hi there as you may or may not already know the iconic Weston-super-Mare bike night has had to move it's location from the sea front to Weston-super-Mare rugby club following the council doubling the rent on the old sea front location meaning the charity no longer can afford to rent the location for it's events. For those of you that don't know The established charity bike event which started back in 2008 is held over 22 nights through the months of May to September. It takes place on the beach lawns in Weston Super Mare on a Thursday evening from 6pm and has all the usual attractions such as bike of the night themed awards ranging from Scooter, Trike, American Power and more, as well as music, hot food and various traders and stalls. All money collected on the evenings is donated to the Poppy Appeal. As we are sure you are aware the Poppy Appeal is a very worth while cause, with many ex-service men and women needing support from the Royal British Legion every year. In 2016 they raised a massive £13555.66 which was presented to the Poppy Appeal on the final bike night and accepted by Mike Pharaoh Branch Chairman of RBL Weston and Christine Chatfield Community Fundraising Manager (The Royal British Legion). So there you go not only is it a fantastic event supporting a great charity it also brings good revenue and trade to the local shops restaurants and other local businesses that will all suffer from loss of trade following this discussion! So let's see if we the public and local businesses can make a difference and get to keep Weston-super-Mare bike night where it belongs on the seafront. You never know with your support we might just make it happen!!
