I wish to express my sincere thanks to the Yorkshire Vintage Association for an excellently run event at Newby Hall at the weekend.
Though it started off with sunshine on Friday the weather deteriorated by Saturday morning.
Despite this setback the Annual Tractor Fest was well supported and enjoyed by exhibitors and spectators alike.
To run an event like this in dry weather is hard work, but the efforts of the committee and unsung heroes behind the scenes can not go unrecognised in conditions such as this.
To all, from the Chairman who was last seen scattering wood chippings to make walkways more manageable, to the ladies in the tea tent providing a welcome cup of tea and cake, I thank you, for an excellent weekend.
Your professionalism and dedication does you proud.
