Have your say

Looking for somewhere to take your Dad on Father’s Day? Look no further – a dream day out with throbbing engines and beer is on offer at Grimston.

A vintage tractor road run and country fair is being held at Manor Farm on Sunday.

You can go along at 10am for a cup of tea and a bacon butty to wave off the vintage tractors as they embark on a road run around the leafy lanes of West Norfolk – then return at 2pm for the country fair and welcome the tractors back as they return from their jaunt.

The tractors will all be there for you to look at as well as displays of vintage farm machinery and steam engines from a bygone age.

Craft stalls and demonstrations of pottery, stone carving, lace and felt making to name but a few with lots of other side shows and stalls for all the family to enjoy.

For refreshments during the day there will be a barbecue, hog roast, strawberries and cream, beer tent and Pimms stall ... all while listening to the great local band DNA.

This event is all in aid of Friends of St Botolph’s Church, which raises money to keep the Grade I listed Church in a good state of repair, as well as doing practical jobs and keeping the churchyard tidy – thus maintaining the church for future generations.

Last September lead was stolen from the roof and the group hope to attract lots of people to the event and raise much-needed funds towards the daunting total of £25,000 for the replacement roof.
