All roads lead to Wimbotsham on Bank holiday Monday for the 27th Fenman Classic Bike Show, a major event for bikers and enthusiasts.

Bike entries will open at 9am, closing at 12 noon, with all pre-1985 classes covered. As well as the bikes there will be an auto jumble sale and stalls

Committee member Stuart Cooper said: “We are following the success of the last 26 shows, which started as a mere whim for a bunch of enthusiasts that live in Wimbotsham. 

“The picturesque village setting for the show lends a very informal atmosphere to this annual event, centered on the village green, with traders and show bikes sited on adjacent land.

“Last year we had around 200 bikes in the show and 5,000 visitors; with tickets at just £4 per person for a whole day out it great value as well.

“To date the sum of well over £110,000 has been raised and donated to local charities, which include the St John Ambulance service, Red Cross, Downham Market children’s fund, air ambulance, C.S.V vocal project, and Wimbotsham village school to name but a few.

“A few years ago we found that the village playing field was in danger of being lost, and since then we have been donating funds to the fighting fund, set up to buy the field if the need arose, for the committee has recognised the fact that if the playing field is lost, the show may have to be terminated.

“With our help the village is now the proud owner of its own Wimbotsham playing field.”
