Fans of motorised two-wheel transport recently came to Brigg by bike to meet up where they had initially gathered as a group 25 years earlier.
They called in at the Woolpack, in the Market Place, whose landlady Alia Smith has kindly forwarded these pictures showing the get-together.
Alia, who formerly worked on the bar staff at Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns and later became landlady of the Britannia Inn, recently took charge of the Woolpack with her supporting team.
Early last night (Wednesday, June 9) there were many vintage scooters propped up near Wetherspoon's White Horse at the eastern end of the town centre. This has long been a popular venue for the owners of Vespas, Lambrettas and other makes.
The Woolpack has booked singer Lauren to perform on Saturday, June 26. from 8.30pm. Free admission - all welcome.
She offers popular songs from the 1950s through to the present day, including hits made famous by Tina Turner, Dusty Springfield and Pink - the latter famously declaring: Let's Get This Party Started!"
Lauren will be making a welcome return to the Woollie, where we saw her perform 'Through The Years' shows in 2018 and 2019.
