Traffic on the roads between Ascot and Windsor looked rather bizarre on Sunday - as 300 motorcyclists in fancy dress set off in a bizarre cavalcade with the Mayoral car leading the way.

The eighth annual Windsor Toy Run organised by the Royal Borough's community wardens Stuart Hookway and Wayne Eveleigh set off from Ascot Racecourse soon after 11am headed towards Windsor.

It ended up at the Broom Farm Estate in Dedworth where the seasonal motorcyclists delivered presents for distribution to families with servicemen and women serving abroad.

The Windsor Toy Run is an annual bike meeting for charity and is held on the last Sunday in November. All the riders were seasonally dressed, mostly as Santa although there were one or two bizarre variations.

The cavalacade was led by the Royal Borough's mayor and Mayoress Cllr John Lenton and Mayoress Margaret Lenton.

Mrs Lenton said: "One motorcyclist wore a ballet tutu. But he did not look like the sort anyone was going to argue with."

The Lentons settling for riding in the mayoral car rather than a motorbike.

Money for the Stroke Association was also collected during the day from donations and a raffle.

Senior community warden Andy Aldridge said: "We have had about 300 motorcycles for the last couple of years who attend this ever growing event.

"We also collect money on the day through donations and a raffle for charity. Anyone wanting to join us next year can find us on the Windsor Toy Run Facebook page.”
