THE future of Calne’s motorcycle meet looks more secure after a meeting last week.

Offers of help came from nearly 40 local people, bikers and the town team, which includes local businesses, at the Lansdowne Strand Hotel, Calne, last Friday.

Another meeting will take place in the hotel at 7pm on Thursday, January 10, to formulate a steering committee.

Organiser Coun Howard Marshall said: “I was thrilled. It shows Calne has a will to support events such as the motorcycle meet.”
