2023   Family Fun Day, Vintage Rally & Road Runs-details on Home page


The photographer didn’t manage to get any pics of the corn harvest in 2023 so this snap of the corner of the field before it was cut will have to do!

The corn was harvested on 21st July 2022.

Corn cut and stooked ready for the rally-hope the rain stays away for a few days so the sheaves are in tip-top condition for threshing. Thanks to all the helpers-obviously the photographer missed the hard work!! (15.8.2018)
