MAGS Easter run...


Not sure if you remember the Christmas MAGS run (stands for Motorbike Action GroupS) well they were out in force again last Saturday... this time with Easter eggs and money they had raised along the way, (over £500, which is going to buy a special adapted bike for school)...



We were lucky with the weather this time, it was a lovely dry and sunny, and about 148 bikes arrive....

....you can imagine the site in front the school and the noise when they arrived....






Here are some of the Easter eggs they had bought for us....









Then it was drinks and Hot Cross Buns in the school canteen and hall, where they presentation us with the money they had collected....

....then all out to see them leave to go up on Portsdown Hill for a well earned ice-cream (in the rain, cos just as they started leaving it started to rain, lol)





Steven found the bike he wanted....which I liked as it was a 3 seater, so I could chill out on the back, lol....

When the bikes started to go, we stood to the side watching, some were louder than others, so every now and again, Steven would jump or squeeze my hand when a noisy one left, lol, yet he was still with a smile on his face and flapping like he does when he's happy....


In all a lovely end to a lovely day.....
