Motorbikes lit up Berwick on Saturday night as riders paraded through the town to raise funds for the RNLI.

Hundreds of spectators gathered at Golden Square and along the Royal Tweed Bridge and Old Bridge to watch the spectacle.

Earlier, members of the Honda Goldwings held a static display alongside live music and entertainment at The Parade.

A fantastic firework display brought the event to a fitting finale.

It was the third successive year the bikers have visited the town. This year, they also held a mini-parade around Haggerston Castle Holiday Park on Friday night.

Event organiser Ron Lawson, said: “It all went great, with numbers of bikes up from 50 last year to 65 this year. I would say the crowds were much bigger this year through the day and at night.

“We also had a new event down at Haggerston Castle Holiday Park, with the first mini-light parade round the park which went down a treat.”

Next year’s parade has already been pencilled in for September 16, 2017.

The organisers plan to look at ways of encouraging people to donate more.

“We raised £2,500 this year but only £850 in donations from the public in the street,” he said.
