Get set for trac­tor ac­tion at one of the county’s big­gest plough­ing matches

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - NEWS -

For­get smart­phones, wi-fi and sat­navs - age old tech­nol­ogy with­out the need for charg­ers will be part of a fiercely-fought spec­ta­cle this week­end.

The Weald of Kent Plough­ing Match has been run­ning for 70 years, with this year’s con­test be­ing held on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15. It’s the largest plough­ing match in the county and brings to­gether the farm­ing and ru­ral com­mu­nity for a day of old fash­ioned pas­times. There will be classes for vin­tage, steam and horse plough­ing - and even some mod­ern ma­chines. Plus there will be a chil­dren’s gymkhana, dog dis­plays and agility, clay pi­geon shoot­ing and dis­plays by ru­ral pro­fes­sion­als with their hounds, birds of prey and more, along­side more than 80 trade stands. Dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds will have a chance to win rosettes in a fun dog show.

The fun, fam­ily day out at Four Oaks Farm in Plumtree Road, Head­corn, is sup­ported by Gul­lands So­lic­i­tors.
