A FESTIVAL organiser is appealing for information and pictures of Northwich's historic motorbike and scooter scene.

Steve Farrell, from Northwich Community Festival's organising committee, is on the hunt for memorabilia to be used in the Northwich Motorbike and Scooter Show, which will be held on August 28 as part of the four-day festival on August Bank Holiday.

Steve said: "We are seeking old pictures with a motorbike theme of the area at the top of Meadow Street where the rockers always parked their motorbikes and visited Geoff Allcock's motorbike shop, now a lawnmower repair shop.

"Arthur Bodies, now Pineland, and Northwich Motorcycles, now The Quayside, were also Northwich motorbike haunts and of course not forgetting Ma Kenyan's, now the Witton Chimes.

"Doing this type of research is interesting as you often wonder if you have your facts correct so I would welcome any information that would ensure we get the story correct.

"I bumped into a guy outside the Melting Pot Café the other week whose name I missed and I would like to thank him for his Northwich motorbike history information.

"I am not sure where the Melting Pot Café fits with all the above and again unsure of what Mods scooter activity we had in the town so any information or pictures would again be gratefully received.

"Someone even told me of a crazy couple who got married in the motorbike park at the top of Meadow Street so again if anyone can shed any light on this couple please let me know."

Anyone with any information should email steviefarrell@aol.com with the subject title 'Mods and Rockers' or ring him on 07841 379521.
