AROUND 200 bikers descended on the country lanes of Dunham Massey on Sunday for the UK's first St George's Day Bike Blessing and Parade.

Event organiser Rev Jerry Sutton, blessed the bikes outside his church, St Mark's, as they paraded though the village.

The 48-year-old vicar presented the bikers with a Biker prayer' and Biker bible', and the bikers were then entertained with live music.

The Children's Society Runaway Children's Project in Manchester will benefit from funds raised at the event.
