More than 100 agricutural vehicles expected to take part in this year’s rally

Organisers of Colyton Vintage Tractor run are gearing up another bumper bank holiday turnout this year.

Around 100 historic vehicles and some very ‘inventive’ trailers are expected to take part in the fundraising rally on Monday, May 25.

A mostly new route will see them leaving from the Peace Memorial Playing Fields, in Colyton, promptly at 10.30am, for a journey lasting around four hours.

Lunch will be available for all in the barn at Millers Farm Shop, Kilmington.

Meanwhile entry forms have already been sent out and anyone who has not returned one and their fee is advised not to delay.

“The run is limited in numbers and we have to be strict with our first-come, first-served policy, said spokesman Ann Veit

“As the years have gone by, we have seen more lady drivers who all seem to enjoy the event tremendously and the whole day has become a wonderful family affair.

“We want to thank all our sponsors for their generosity especially our main ones - CRW Accountants, of Colyton. Last year, the sponsors supported us in raising £3,000 for the Marden House Neurological Centre, in Exeter, who used the money to buy two specialist wheelchairs they desperately needed.

“This year we are raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and hope to do as well, if not better, for these nurses who do such a wonderful job.”
