PREPARATIONS for Moreton Pinkney’s annual Working Vintage Harvest are bitter sweet as this year’s event will be the last.

The excitement leading up to the seventh annual show is tinged with sadness as years of fundraising and fun come to an end on Saturday, September 3.

The event is organised by the Keeves family and was the brainchild of Terry Keeves, a former farm worker with a passion for the machinery he once used.

Mr Keeves’ daughter-in-law Martine Keeves helps run the event. She said: “We have a lot going on this year so the day will be as great as it has always been.

“We are sad that it is coming to an end but an awful lot of hard work goes into organising the event each year and we feel the time is right to call it a day.

“We feel we have done a lot of good work over the years, raising money for charity and providing the villagers with a fun day out.”

Over the past seven years, the family have raised more than £14,300 for different charities.

The event runs from 11am to 4pm. Entry costs £2.50 for adults, £1 for children or £6 for the family.
