Fans of vintage farm machinery enjoyed a weekend of displays and demontrations at Great Waldingfield airfield.

Now in its 12th year, the Monks Eleigh Bygone Collectors Club’s (MEBCC) annual rally attracted a record number of visitors, all keen to view the array of vintage tractors, cars, motorbikes and steam engines on display.

All money raised from the event will go to local community transport group, Go START. Last year, the club donated more than £1,000 to the charity Prostate Action.

MEBCC chairman and founder Paul Goodchild said: “Alongside all of the vintage machinery this year, we had one of the latest £400,000 sugarbeet harvesters on show. We like to have something different every time and this was a way of contrasting the old with the new.

“It was a great weekend with the best selection of vintage tractors we have seen at the show. We would really like to thank Chilton Grain for continuing to allow us to use the airfield.”

The club is now gearing up for its next charity event - a vintage tractor ploughing day in Valley Road, Great Waldingfield on August 25.
