We will be trying to organise a display of tractors through the ages, from the Fordson F of 1917/18 right through to the very latest New Holland high capacity machines designed for demanding large scale farming and contracting.

I am working on providing supporting static displays to demonstrate the innovation and popularity of the F & F products over 100 years and I am also hopeful that we may have the support of the travelling tent from FFA HQ which will be a great addition (Don't forget your passports Chaps!).

We have already some very exciting commitments for displays from our members and others to support the event and where there may be duplication of models, we will obviously give priority to those who only have one tractor to exhibit and ask those with a larger collection to be more flexible please with their entries. This will hopefully ensure that we have as comprehensive a display and parade as possible.
