Visitors to Hilgay on Saturday had a taste of farming from a lost age – and helped with fundraising

A bygones day was held at the Good Companions Hall on Saturday in aid of the club for over 55s, which meets at the Ely Road venue each week.

The attractions included a host of vintage farming equipment, mostly dating back to the 1920s and 1930s.

Peter Bates, who helped to organise the event, admitted the poor weather had affected the attendance, but added: “We had a good day. It was well supported.” The final total raised is not yet known, though it is hoped the proceeds will be presented to the club at a future meeting.
