Planning is already under way for the popular Colyton Vintage Tractor Run on bank holiday Monday, May 29.

A wide variety of vintage tractors will be on display at the Colyton Peace Memorial Playing Fields from 9am, and around 120 are expected to take part in the procession to Hawkchurch, starting at 10.30am.

This year’s chosen charities are Seaton Friends Hospice Care @ Home – funded by Seaton League of Friends – and the Alzheimer’s Society. Last year, more than £3,000 was raised for Devon Air Ambulance and Devon Freewheelers.

Organising secretary Zoe 
Parsons urged people to check their entry forms when they receive them this year as there is a different return address.
