The vintage tractor, car and machinery section continues to go from strength to strength each year. Collecting and restoring agricultural power from the past is a popular past time for many people and this enables us to showcase a wonderful and colourful collection of vintage and classic tractors, cars and commercials. Most of the vehicles exhibited today are locally owned and the owners take great delight in driving their vehicles to our show, some are shown in ex farm condition and some are beautifully restored to a very high standard, so do please make the time to have a good look at the selection we present. Of course we will have a grand arena display of most of the vehicles during the afternoon and this is often a real sight to behold.
To help encourage our younger visitors to take an interest in vintage equipment we have devised a vintage section children’s challenge for this year’s show this will be available from the side of the miniature steam threshing outfit.
Last year the first recipient of the Philip Cowell Memorial Trophy went to Mr Roy Foxcroft with his extremely well presented vintage car. We extend our full congratulations to him and Mrs Foxcroft.
