Scilly’s motorbike enthusiasts are meeting this evening for their annual Buntzig Club charity barbecue at the Old Town Inn.

Organiser James Sherris says they’re hoping for a bigger turnout this year after switching to a Saturday from their usual Thursday night get-together.

He says that will give club members a chance to recover on Sunday morning, especially as the barbecue coincides with the Old Town Inn Ale Festival.

James is hoping that around twenty bikers will turn up and he says anyone “with two wheels and an engine” is welcome to come, even moped riders.

The group are likely to make their traditional circuit of St Mary’s before the barbecue begins at 6.30pm and there’ll be music from islands’ band All Squared Up. If the weather is bad the group will move indoors.

Funds raised will go to the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
