The Clifford Arms Classic Show

The Clifford Arms Show in Great Haywood, Staffordshire, goes from strength to strength.

This year’s event was on May 19, with sunshine drawing a big crowd of classic and modern bikes to the car park of this popular pub.

Club stands from the Norton Owners, Moto Guzzi, Vintage Japanese and Clifford Clubs added to the attraction with some stunning restorations.

It was Mike Walker’s rare 1934 Moto Guzzi 500cc single (shown below) that took home the only concourse award as Best Bike.

The show raises money for a range of charities, not charging admission but asking for donations.

This year saw a new record, with Blood Bikers and Midland Air Ambulance sharing the entry income and Crohn’s Disease UK and Colitis UK sharing the tea and coffee stall’s takings.

Between them all they shared more than £1100, which had organiser Barry Owen very happy: “We’ve made £800 to £900 before and I wanted to reach £1000 this year,” he smiled.

“Over £1100 was a great result for both the charities and local bikers.”
