Ploughers dig deep for charity tractor match in Roydon
A transit of tractors showcased their ploughing skills at Roydon Hall Farm on Sunday to raise funds for the region’s air ambulance.
The tractor working day and ploughing match saw 49 different vehicles on site for the competition, which raised £1,100 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
The event was organised by Emma Stephenson and her husband Brian, who moved to Norfolk in March last year.
Ms Stephenson said: “We used to go to a ploughing match every year when we lived in Nottinghamshire, and when we moved here last year, we thought we would do our own. We just want to keep an old skill going.”
She said that they enjoyed a “really good turnout” at the event, which saw people on get on their tractors to compete against each other in five different classes.
The overall winner of the day was Peter Carman from Cawston, who also came top of the vintage mounted class.
Josh Bullard, 13, who was the youngest entrant of the day, enjoyed a successful day when he came second in the novice class.
It is hoped that another match will be held next year.
