Farmers laugh off the cold for charity tractor run
A CONVOY of 55 vintage tractors set off from Fingest on a 27-mile charity run through the Chilterns.
Farmers gathered in a field near the Chequers pub on Sunday for a short service conducted by Rev John Wigram, rector of the Hambleden valley.
The then departed one by one at about 10am and headed south down the valley towards Skirmett. Many of the participants had brought their families, who were towed behind the tractors in trailers and wagons.
The farmers followed a circular route through several farms and country estates before stopping for lunch at Wycombe Air Park.
They were joined on the return journey by Rev Wigram, who drove one of the tractors.
