Mini Mokes....Emperor Rosko....Radio Caroline.....Felixstowe Sept 9th

Post by David Hunt » Thu Jul 27, 2017 14:22

On the 9th September (a Saturday) Emperor Rosko (you must remember him as a radio DJ in the 60s) will be back in the UK, along with Sherri Lynn, both of whom were on the front cover of Moking 156, to attend an event in Felixstowe where a commemorative stone will be unveiled to celebrate Radio Caroline, the pirate radio station that first broadcast off the coast of Felixstowe in the swinging sixties.

He is asking if 10 or more Mokes are able to attend the event to help give a "sixties" feel to the occasion. He would like to be able to ride with Sherri in a Moke from London to Felixstowe and back again and convoy, collect or meet up with as many Mokes as possible along the way.

So is anyone in the London/Home Counties/South East/Heart of England areas able to make up the numbers and possibly act as chauffeur to Mr Rosko and Ms Lynn.

If there are enough Mokes then Rosko is promising unrivalled publicity for the Club in some of the national papers.

Please contact Mark Peacock, details in the front of the last edition of Moking

This event may now have to run on the Satudray (9th) to tie in with other celebrations taking place to commemorate the pirate station Radio Caroline.

Is this date more convenient.? Please get in touch with Mark ASAP. As before his details in Moking.

A quick update. The day is now confirmed as Saturday the 9th.

Rosko and party will be travelling from central London to Felixstowe in three Mokes, departing at 10AM, to rendezvous with those coming from the North at The Miller and Carter Pub, Felixstowe Road, Nacton, IP10 0DF just off the A14/A1156 junction (No58).

12 Mokes in total have so far "signed up" for the day. If you want to take part and have yet to volunteer or require more information then get in touch with Mark Peacock whose contact details are in the last edition of Moking.

Funnily enough, I was recently looking at photos of the original Moke run he organised in some old copies of the club magazine

Great videos, looks like everyone had a great day with great weather!
The Mokes seemed to have gone down brilliantly with the crowds!
Well organised Mark! and well done to the volunteers who turned out.

Hi All,
