The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) has expanded operations in the North East with the formation of a new branch in Morpeth.
It is the creation of local biker George Carnegie, who had been thinking about the idea for some time after watching the progress of MAG around the country.
Two meetings of the new group have already taken place and the next one is scheduled for Monday at the Joiners Arms, 8pm start.
George said: “We’ll be talking about bikes and other things bikers usually discuss, such as mechanical stuff and weather issues, and a bit about what we may want to raise with local councils.
“But it’s really a social event, open to anyone with an interest in bikes or scooters.”
