The Red Lion goes racing 4th November ‘12

With an idea of taking a youngster go-karting for their Birthday, pub owner Michael Massey decided to expand on this and take a group of sixteen from The Red Lion

to the Anglia Indoor kart Racing in Ipswich, Suffolk.

The group consisting of an age range between ten and forty years enjoyed a super, fun packed afternoon at what is to become an annual event for the regulars and employees of The Red Lion.

The group was divided into three with each person doing thirty laps, all were trying to gain the fastest lap time to win a greatly desired £20 note that was put forward as the prize. This was won in a hotly contested race by Bradley Minns (who works at The Red Lion) and was closely followed by one of the regular Red Lion visitors, Paul Tyler and in third place was Michael Massey.

The funniest moments of the day were highlighted by Kathy Knights who managed to lose the front wheel from her kart, this she managed to catch in her lap! Jason Tyler thought that he was in a limbo competition when he ended up underneath the crash barrier!! Gratefully, everyone came home having had a superb time and were all injury free apart from a few bruises!

East Coast Harley Club

On Sunday the 24th June 2012, The Red Lion played host to what has become an annual charity fund raising event in conjunction with the East Coast Harley Club (E.C.H.C) in aide of the East Anglian Air Ambulance and The Prostrate Cancer Charity.

The event was organised by Sally Chapman, one of only two lady members of the ECHC, she was delighted with the turnout as unforeseen thunder storms hit Norfolk and Suffolk mid-morning with spectacular hail and torrential rain. Despite the weather, 292 visitors made it to The Red Lion and enjoyed a fabulous afternoon. Live music was supplied by local band ‘Red Mecca’, there were a variety of show classes for all different types of Harley bikes, a hog roast, an outside bar, ice-creams and a raffle – all of which raised a fantastic £839.94 for the charities.

The 'Best in Show' bike belonged to Neville Crisp.
