A NEW group for youngsters keen on motorcycles or mopeds is being set up in Watton and the organisers want anyone interested to come forward to say how it should be run.

Wayland Young Riders will be a motorcycle club for young people in Watton and the surrounding area.

It is being set up by Watton safer neighbourhood policing team and The Wayland Partnership to educate young motorcyclists about safe riding and bike maintenance.

The group is aimed at young people between the ages of 16 and 25.

Watton PCSO Joe Jermy said: “We are encouraging young bike enthusiasts to get involved in this exciting new project in the town. We hope that the project will improve their bike security measures as well as educating motorcyclists about road safety.”

The group also needs volunteers with specialist skills and knowledge of motorbikes to help out at the Wayland Young Riders club.

The organisation of the new group follows on from a project which saw young people working with ITV Fixers to produce a documentary about road safety.

Jan Godfrey, from the Wayland Partnership, said: “This is another example of the Wayland Partnership and the SNT working together for Wayland and is a follow up to the young people's project to raise awareness of bike safety with ITV Fixers.”

If you are able to assist and provide some of your spare time to support the project contact Watton SNT on 0845 456 4567 or e-mail sntwatton@norfolk.pnn.police.uk.

Young bikers are being invited to attend a meeting at 7pm on Tuesday, March 23, at The Surge, Watton.
