The Blindley Heath Tractor Fest was held at the Osney Lodge Farm, South Godstone, all in aid of the Brooklands School for children with additional needs. Last year it was held at the 'Jolly Farmer Pub'  just down the road where it was much more informal but seemed better attended. This even was well organised with stalls and amusements but seemed to have attracted less public, possibly due to the iffy weather. What was also missing, and which was quite a draw at Jolly Farmer, was the massed display of Classic Cars bought in by the public. The Tractor fest is an event 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. 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. All the 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, but most had signs of just having come out of a field following harvesting! -   Or neglect ?
