Colyton’s annual vintage tractor run over the May bank holiday weekend will raise vital funds for Devon Air Ambulance and Devon Freewheelers.

Visitors can see a wide variety of vintage tractors on display at the Colyton Peace Memorial Playing Fields, on Monday, May 30, from 9am.

Later, crowds will watch the procession of 120 vintage farming vehicles set off at 10.30am to journey along the Jurassic Coast, passing through Seaton town centre before arriving at Branscombe Village Hall at around 2pm. Organising secretary Zoe Parsons said: “Last year, over £3,000 was raised for MacMillan Cancer Support and we hope to achieve a similar result this year.”
