Thread Name: Pagans v. Hell's Angels AGAIN!
Subject: RE: Pagans v. H.Angels AGAIN!
"I thought this was going to be about Hastings Jack-in-the-Green! That's a May festival when loads of Morris teams & musicians share Hastings with a motorbike rally of some description."

It isn't a rally - just the good old British tradition of going to the seaside on a bank holiday. If you go at Easter, Hastings is wall to wall with scooters and parkas. May Day is reserved for the leather and chrome lot. Get a gang of HA's and a morris team in competition and it's a scream!! One year a drum corp I was in made more noise than a bank of Harleys revving up along the front, and it was all good natured and fun.....

I used to ride with my local Chapter of the HA's, the leader of which was a vicar's son..... go figure! And as for every group having a bad apple - heck, even church choirs have those. Just because I like to wear leather and silver jewellry, ride a motorbike and listen to Black Sabbath, doesn't mean I don't do cross stitch and like pussycats......
