The FFA had a stand at this years 41st Stradsett Park Vintage Rally on Sunday 30th April and Monday 1st May.
We had a selection of 6 tractors on the FFA stand all very different from each other, which got a lot of interest and several new members for the club.
This show is organised and run by the East Anglian Group of the National Vintage Tractor and Engine Club. Obviously the show was dominated by tractors and stationary engines but it also had plenty of other attractions and trade stands.
This show always has a special theme and this years was spreaders and sprayers through the ages. Starting with small tractor mounted to large modern self-propelled machines.
Now for Fords and Fordsons of which there were about 70 in the programme. Most were displayed in age order starting with a 1917 Fordson F up to a 65 Reg New Holland T7. Others were to be found on club stands and in the spraying section.
Unfortunately Conrad Hopkins was taken to hospital during the rally but I understand that he is now home. We wish him a speedy recover.
A very friendly and well organised show well worth a visit.
