High hopes for new attraction

HAVING just returned from the Eastern Counties Vintage Tractor & Heritage Spectacular (March 31/April 1) event, I would like to say how much I enjoyed the show.

Thanks must go to Roger and Fran Desborough, the many exhibitors, and all those who helped to make this show such a success. The pre 1930s section had one of the best selection of rare tractors I have ever seen gathered in one place.

The local Starting Handle Club put on a fantastic display, together with the many other clubs who were also showing. The Dancing Does were quite a spectacle and there was a friendly atmosphere throughout the show; the carvery and entertainment on the Saturday night was thoroughly enjoyed.

I do hope that this show will now become a regular event.

Brian Smith,
Shrewsbury.
