The Forgotten Cyclists will host a Bike Show for the Special Care Baby Unit

The Forgotten Bike Show will take place on Saturday July 23 on Holywell High Street.

Visitors can expect to see prizes, raffles, live bands, kiddie rides, stalls, a petting zoo and of course lots of bikes.

The event is organized by the Forgotten Riders MCC Motorcycle Club, a group of 11 motorcycle enthusiasts based in Holywell, Chester and Saltney.

Band member and event organizer Keef Richmond said: “We’re just friends who love bikes.”

Marcus Stax is the club’s chairman and he and Keef have known each other for over 20 years.

The couple set up the club around 6 months ago and run monthly meetups in North Wales.

The club hopes to raise funds for the Glan Clwyd Special Care Unit (SCBU) through the event.

Mr Richmond said: ‘When we were thinking of having the bike show, we wanted to steer it towards something and someone to benefit from it.’

The choice to support SCBU comes from both Mr. Stax and Mr. Richmond, as both men had children or grandchildren who received care from the units.

Mr Richmond praised the work of the unit and said: ‘It’s a wonderful thing they are doing’.

Mr Richmond had two grandchildren who needed the service as they were both born premature and one had a cleft lip palette and needed a lot of specialist care.

The main attraction of the event is the grand raffle which features top notch prizes.

The event starts at 10 a.m.
