An unusual event was held at the Jolly Farmer, Horne, the SVVS's previous winter indoor venue, which was a "Charity Tractor Run and Family Fun Day", all in aid of the Brooklands School for children with additional needs. Being in the countryside, it was very interesting to have a day devoted to the implement most often seen but not fully noticed, a humble Tractor. These days many tractors are no longer humble,  but are massive machines brimming with computer wizardry and satellite navigation!  Some of the larger more complex tractors cost in excess of 250,000 !! Fortunately not all local farmers can afford tractors of this type so bought along their more normal every-day machines. Before the show started all tractors went on a parade through the local lanes for quite a long drive to be seen by local neighbours. It was quite a sight. Some tractors on show were quite historical, and some with signs that they are in everyday use. As we are a Vintage Vehicle Society we do have members who own and exhibit vintage tractors and we also have members who have modern tractors and use them for farming. Even mud on some! Other than at agricultural/county shows where only brand new machinery is seen, it is not often that such a wide range of tractors both old and new can be seen assembled at one place. Well done !
