Thirty tractors roll up for club’s ploughing match
Thirty vintage and classic tractors took part in an annual ploughing match in aid of a vital charity.
The sun shone as the East Anglian branch of the Ferguson Club held the event at Hall Farm, in Fornham St Martin, on Sunday.
Each tractor driver received a plaque sponsored by Silver Fox Tractor Spares.
Organisers Henry Castle and Don Sapsford, who are local members of the Ferguson Club, thanked the three Society of Ploughmen judges, who awarded points for each ploughed area and Andrew Long for providing the land.
Those who took part included the Ford Fordson Association.
Mr Castle said: “The conditions were perfect because we had rain a fortnight before and there was just enough moisture.
“We had good weather and the ploughing was fantastic.
“Everyone went home happy and it was a good day.”
The title of Lady Champion went to Sarah Tween with Gemma Arbon in second place.
The Ferguson Champion was Richard Welham and runner-up was Jim Mawar.
Dick Birch scooped the Novice Ferguson Driver title while Peter Rudling won Best Tractor and Plough.
A donation was made to the East Anglian Air Ambulance from the event.
