MOTORBIKES created quite a buzz when they appeared in droves at the Fleece Inn, Bretforton near Evesham, to raise money for the Midlands Air Ambulance.

More than 1,000 bikes turned up creating a buzz in the air as the joined villagers for the fundraiser.

Bretforton First School sold teas and coffees and raised more than £100, towards its seaside fete.

Other donations in the Fleece raised £629.42 for the Midlands Air Ambulance.

Cotswold Bikers Nites are held at a different location each Wednesday evening between April and September in and around the Cotswolds, and welcome all machines from mopeds to motorbikes including scooters, choppers and trikes.

Every biker attending is encouraged to make a donation towards the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and since starting in 2002, their events have raised £26,885.05.

Nigel Smith, landlord of the Fleece, said: "Bretforton is a friendly, active community and we were delighted that the First School got involved and other local residents came along too to support the Cotswold Bikers’ fundraising.

"It was a great atmosphere and everyone had a happy time whilst raising money for this essential charity."
