Motorbike Action Group...

Well it was that time of year again yesterday, when the bikers come together and have a big ride along Portsdown Hill and down the Eastern Road to the Mary Rose school, bringing money and presents for the children of our school...

We had a total of 141 bikes turn up and I lost count of all the Santa's and reindeer's, it was a sight to be be seen, all those gleaming noisy bikes and my poor fingers, Steven would not let go of me. I had to prise us apart so I could take a few photos, trying to explain I cannot take he's photo while I'm standing next to him holding he's hand, lol...

Here are the pictures I managed to take...






and as you can see, he managed to grab hold of a few friends hands for security, including a man in red, (think he was hoping he was going to be given the present Santa was holding), lol...

A BIG THANK TO ALL INVOLVED, as it was little emotional yesterday, as it was Steven last official MAGS Christmas visit, we will be most welcome next year, as guests, because of course Steven would have left the Mary Rose school and he'll be doing something completely different (of which I'm still working on)...

but on the brighter side, we hopefully have their Easter run to look forward too, if they are kind enough to carry on....

Things like that make you realise there are nice people in the world (we always hear the bad stuff).
I bet the bikers enjoy it more than the kids!
