Nottinghamshire Vintage Tractor and Engine Club Event
The Nottinghamshire Vintage Tractor & Engine Club will be holding their Ruby Celebrations at a working weekend over the August Bank Holiday at Gamston, Near Retford.
The event, taking place at Gamston Grange includes a ploughing match, working tractors, and have-a-go old time ploughing with one of a pair of shire horses.
It’s a great option for family days out with lots to see and do as well as a DIY barbeque and a licensed bar for all three days of the event. If you have young children that like big tractors, then they’ll definitely love this event.
Eileen Ducksbury, who works at Bassetlaw Museum and her husband Paul, are two of the organisers. They are expecting a large turnout over the three days with an auction and tractor run on Saturday.
The main SHOW DAY however is Sunday 28 August with free trailer rides around the park. The meeting comes to a head when you can see how the professionals operate with the County Ploughing Match Finals on Monday 29 August.
As well as the agricultural displays there will be ‘have-a-go’ archery for the children, trailer rides, tractor pull and catering including breakfasts, plus a selection of trade stands and stalls.
Come along and enjoy the great North Nottinghamshire countryside. Entry for adults £3, children/concessions £2, further information can be found at their website http://notts-tractor-working-weekend.webs.com/.
