It was a sight to behold when 25 vintage tractors and their ploughs took to a field near Everdon.

The Everdon Vintage Ploughing Match took place last week with 25 ploughmen taking part, watched by a crowd of spectators. Each tractor is assigned a strip of field, and their ploughing is judged on a series of categories to see how good and neat the results are. This year’s event raised £625 for the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. The organisers wish to thank all who made cakes, donated prizes and otherwise helped.
