Olympic scooters to grace music festival

Scooters which formed part of the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games will go on display at Sudbury’s Live and Kicking festival.

Around 20 scooters from the ceremony, including a Vespa Rally 200 and a Lambretta LI 150, will go on show during the music festival at the MEL Group Stadium.

The scooters will be at the event – taking place in June – thanks to the support of Sudbury Scooter Club and group member Warren Brown, who took part in the Olympic ceremony.

“The closing ceremony was without doubt one of the best experiences of my life,” said Mr Brown, from Great Cornard. “I just thought it would be a great idea if we could get some of those scooters at the festival.”
