Tractor charity road run

It forecast a wet morning for the 3rd April but what a lovely day it turned out to be for the 21 mile vintage tractor charity road run in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Starting outside the Humber Tavern in Paull, the ladies and gents (yes, there was a couple of lady tractor drivers amongst them) travelled through Preston, Burstwick, Keyingham and along down the sleepy roads near Cherry Cob sands where the drivers could look across the fields and see the banks of the Humber and across the river to the South bank.
The event was organised for the second time following the success of last year by former farm manager Geoff Stephenson, Geoff also owns three vintage tractors.
I was told that around 80 tractors took part at a cost of £10 per tractor. I haven’t got anything official for how much was raised but if all went to plan the total just for the entry fee for the tractors should be around £800. Well done guys and gals.
