Trac­tors from far and wide gather for an­nual run

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

THERE was a great turnout at the Big­stone Trac­tor Run last Sun­day with peo­ple com­ing from all over West Wick­low, Car­low and Kil­dare to take part.

A di­verse ar­ray of vin­tage trac­tors and cars, lor­ries and mo­tor­bikes gath­ered at Big­stone Community Hall on a mild, cloudy day. There was a fes­tive at­mos­phere with coun­try mu­sic boom­ing out as more and more ve­hi­cles came to regis­ter be­fore the 2 p.m. start.

Par­ents, teenagers, chil­dren and vin­tage en­thu­si­asts were all in ev­i­dence as the venue be­came a meet­ing point for neigh­bours, fam­ily and friends to catch up and en­joy the fun at­mos­phere.

This event has grown over the past three years and is now an im­por­tant fundraiser for the Big­stone Community Hall which is used by many community groups in the area.

Well done to Kevin Burke, Donal Ka­vanagh and Niall Kane who or­gan­ised this years’ event with many oth­ers in the community in­volved in the su­per­vi­sion, reg­is­tra­tion and sup­ply of re­fresh­ments on the day.
