On Saturday July 12, scooter enthusiasts from across the country will be heading to Lincoln for the highlight of the scootering year.

Scoot to the Waterfront will see the Brayford pool area of the city filled with hundreds of eye-catching vehicles, from classic Vespas to Lambrettas and younger models.

Meanwhile, there will be lots of scooter-related memorabilia and collectables available from stalls along the Brayford.

For entertainment, The Underdogs will be making an appearance from 12pm-1pm, followed by Blistered, performing between 2pm-3pm.

Lincoln Knight Scooter Club teamed-up with Lincoln BIG to produce what promises to be a fantastic day for scooter-fans and families of all ages explained Events Co-ordinator Dave Walker.

He said: “Last year we welcomed 300 vehicles and the date actually clashed with a couple of other events, so this year we could attract even more riders and visitors, especially if the weather is good.

“Owners will be parking-up their scooters as soon as they arrive and people will be able to walk around and get a closer look at them.

“The day will also feature a “custom show”. Scooterists who take extra pride in their wheels, will have the chance to win a string of trophies.”

Lincoln BIG Events and Promotions Organiser Rachel Hanson added: “We are delighted to announce the return of Scoot to the Waterfront, which is always very popular and which promises to be even livelier this time around.”

A family fun day held at St Marks Shopping Centre in Lincoln for charity over the weekend has raised £230.

The team from St Marks held the family fun day in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust on July 5.

The event included bouncy castles, a face painter, children’s entertainer and a Bird of Prey display, with activities from businesses at St Marks including a Mothercare Baby & Toddler area, The Entertainer Arts & Crafts table and a Toys R Us Outdoor Fun area.

Facilities manager at St Marks, Nikki North, who organised the event, concluded that all the money raised from the day would be evenly split between the charities.

“Unfortunately the rain didn’t hold out for us, and it was quite a wet day, but that didn’t dampen the spirit of the St Marks team,” she said “The fun day was a great way of raising awareness of Macmillan in the community, ensuring that people know where to go to for support if they need it.”

Rob Brandford, UK Director of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust said: “The David Sheldrick WildlifeTrust (DSWT) exists to offer a second chance for Kenya’s orphaned baby elephants, whilst securing a safe environment for their rehabilitation back into the wild expanses of Tsavo National Park when grown.

“Our lifesaving work could not be made possible without the continued support of individuals around the world helping us protect Kenya’s wildlife and with that were thrilled to be a part of the St Marks Charity Fun Day in Lincoln.”
