THEY came in all shapes and sizes, old ones, new ones and some lov­ingly re­fur­bished – 78 trac­tors for a 16-mile char­ity run which started in Smar­den. The an­nual event last Sun­day raised some £1,220 for the Pil­grims Hospice in me­mory of lo­cal man Roy Vi­dler, who died eight years ago. The pro­ces­sion started from New House Farm and fin­ished at the Fly­ing Horse pub. “We had all sort of trac­tors,” said Mike Wil­son one the event’s helpers. “Some of the old ones are still used on small hold­ings, while quite a num­ber are kept as a hobby, fully ren­o­vated. “The event was or­gan­ised by my son Mark and Wil­liam Hard­ing along with many helpers. We are re­ally grate­ful for all their ef­forts.”
