RESIDENTS at a Poole care home were thrilled by the roar of engines during a special classic bike show.
The grounds of Upton Bay welcomed bikers on Sunday, October 15, where residents, staff and visitors enjoyed taking in a host of classic two-wheelers.
Around 50 riders representing three local organisations along with members brought smiles on their bikes.
A spokesperson for Upton Bay said: “A special thanks to Steve from Poole Moto in Hamworthy who bought a selection of his own bikes to the event.
“The bike riders, with their enthusiasm and laughter, created a vibrant atmosphere that lifted the spirits of the residents.
“Their presence showcased the power of unity and the positive impact that can be achieved when we come together for a common cause.”
Bikes ranged from old Triumphs, pre-war bikes, American trikes, a 1975 Kawasaki ZIB, Harley Davidsons and many more.
Meanwhile, the hospitality team served hot dogs with onions and relish, steaming hot cider and other refreshments.
Resident, Jean, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon surrounded by lots of great people and amazing bikes.
“Thankfully the weather held out. Staff did a great job, not just on the day, but organising the event and getting everyone together.”
Mevin Sohorye, general manager at the home, said: “Staff at Upton Bay are dedicated to making sure that the home is a hub of the local community, and this event, along with all their hard work, has definitely paid off. It was a resounding success.”
