Easter Run

To help raise funds for Rachel House (CHAS), the Carronvalley Motorcyle Club has its ninth annual Easter Egg Run on Sunday, April 5, starting at the Falkirk Wheel at 10 a.m. Any readers who ride scooters, tricycles, or motorcycles or who just like the spectacle of a couple of hundred motorcycles in convoy are very welcome to join in. This is done with the co-operation of Police Scotland, local and road authorities. The route takes in the Clackmannanshire Bridge to Kinross with a representative group going into Kinross itself. A sample few will go to Rachel House to allow the children to sit on the bikes and perhaps rev them up. Further information can be had from the CHAS website or from Carron Valley Motorcycle Club on Facebook, or telephone Wullie on 07752 844698 or Tam on 0794 906 0336,
