More than 40 farm machines paraded through villages in Mid Suffolk as the district’s tractor road run raised funds for charity.

The tractors, of all ages and sizes, made their way from Haughley Park and travelled through villages such as Harleston, Wetherden, Bacton, and stopped at the Trowel and Hammer in Cotton, before returning to Haughley Park.

Martyn Reeve, who helped organise the event said: “We raised £750 for Macmillan Nurses. It was fantastic, and good fun was had by all.”

Before the event, drivers were inspecting each other’s vehicles, and helping out if there were any problems.

Mr Reeve said: “A big thanks to the drivers who turned out and made the event a success, and the public who came out to see us. Thanks to the Williams family too, who let us use Haughley Park free of charge.”
