New sponsor for Biker Down Wiltshire

Date: 28th October, 2019

Work is underway to develop a Biker Down scheme across Wiltshire, after sponsorship for the coming year was secured.

Biker Down is a national road safety initiative targeted at motorcyclists, originally conceived and started by Kent Fire & Rescue Service, and it has recently launched locally.

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service has piloted the scheme with the help of Wiltshire Air Ambulance, but the support now provided by AJN Steelstock means the three-part programme can be delivered in multiple locations.

Road safety manager Christine Sharma said: “Biker Down was initially started in Wiltshire by Watch Manager Dean Hoskins, a keen motorcyclist himself who wanted to see the scheme available in this area. Thanks to the sponsorship from AJN Steelstock, which has given us both a generous financial contribution and a Triumph Daytona 675 motorbike, we are now able to make this part of our county-wide road safety delivery.”

WM Hoskins added: “Our intention is to make the scheme available at fire stations around Wiltshire, and this funding means we can now buy all of the resources we need to run the programme effectively. The bike will be used for display purposes at public events to help us promote road safety and the Biker Down scheme to as many people as possible.”

Alan Boyden, joint managing director at AJN Steelstock, said: “Being a biker myself, and with numerous like-minded staff, I really see the benefit of schemes like Biker Down, so I welcomed this opportunity to support the new Wiltshire programme. I have no doubt that it will help to save lives, and we’ll certainly be promoting it with our customers and colleagues.”
