The entry fee is to cover costs (some service providerers have increased costs dramatically) and allow entry to the band afterwards. Profits are then donated to the Animal Charity listed above. It is noted that a small number try and avoid paying this £5. It is not only mean, it is disrespectful to the 30 or so volunteers who give up their time to make the event a success and an enjoyable day. It is also disrespectful to the other bikers, many of whom express their annoyance over this. Lets make this a year when everyone contributes.
