Mid Suffolk Tractor road run
It was the annual Mid Suffolk Tractor road run which took place on 9th July.40 tractors took part and the drivers came from all parts of Suffolk ,Norfolk and a married couple came from Bourn,Cambridge. The weather was fine,too hot for some,and everyone had a very enjoyable day. The event was organised by Ferguson Club member,Don Sapsford and several other Club members took part. The route took us through various villages in Suffolk including Wetherden,Bacton,Haughley and Finningham.People came out to wave as we went past.Even the local traffic was quite happy to pull over to let the convoy come through.After a mid morning stop for lunch everyone got back safely to the starting point in the afternoon. On return an excellent raffle was held and together with the entry fee a total of £ 989 was collected on behalf of the Macmillan nurses.
Each driver received a plaque donated by a local firm to remind them of the day.
