Fleet is the venue for the 2019 Fenland Working Weekend




The Fenland Working Weekend is returning next weekend to show off the very best of modern and vintage tractors, writes Victoria Nixon.

Enthusiasts from far and wide can come and experience the best display of rare and collectable vehicles at the event - all held on fields in Mill Bank Road, Fleet, by kind permission of Lincolnshire Field Products

People will also be able to learn about traditional agricultural methods over the two days on Saturday, September 28, and Sunday, 29. It starts at 10am each day with hot and cold food and drinks available.

It's free to attend for spectators and £5 minimum donationfor people wanting to display a machine - with the money going to charity. There'll also be regular trailer rides around the show for people wanting an alternative way to view the displays.

Andrew French, one of the organisers, said: “The raffle prizes have been donated from local agricultural manufacturers. We have people coming from up to 30 miles away to display their vehicles, or those who come just come to watch, with those who are regulars at the show every year.”

Money raised will go towards Holbeach Hospital. Last year, it raised £642.
