As many as 70 vintage tractors will be processing through the villages around Moulton this Sunday.

It’s Moulton Charity Tractor Run, in aid of Moulton Mill, which sets off at 10.30am from the field at Moulton Bulb Company.

Organiser Paul Beecham – who has become a Friend of the Mill in the six years he has organised the event – says last year as many as 73 tractors turned up, helping to raise £1,268 for the mill.

Entry to the 20-mile run is £5 and is followed (at about 1pm) by hot snacks and a vintage display on the field.

Paul said: “We get some really old tractors – some run on paraffin. It’s a nice sight. We’ve only had two breakdowns since I have been doing it. I think we look after tractors better than wives at times.”
