CLASSIC tractor fans flocked to a farm in Lutton Marsh for its 12th annual charity tillage weekend.

The event attracted 27 vintage tractor enthusiasts from across South Holland and raised £625 for Macmillan Cancer Support with two days of ploughing a 21-acre field of wheat stubbles with ploughs and furrows of various ages and sizes.

The weekend was hosted and organised by Mickey Smith and Gerry Hutchinson – who were delighted to pull in so much cash for the Spalding and Holbeach charity branch.

Mr Hutchinson said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to what I consider to be a marvellous effort from this comparatively small, informal event”.
