Angela Hammond, one of the organisers, said: “Everyone connected with the run would like to thank all the tractor drivers and to the people who turned out to watch, making it a really good day.

“The first year we had 24 tractors, last year we had 47, and this year we had 61 tractors taking part.

“We would like to say a big thank you to Sue and Keith Walton for letting us use their field, and for all their help, from start to finish on the tractor run.

“Also to Dave, the fish and chip man, for the beautiful food that everyone really enjoyed.
