The East Devon Tractor & Vintage Machinery club are coordinating the Devon National Vintage tractor road run 2016, with all proceeds going to Devon Air ambulance; St Luke’s hospice & Devon Freewheelers in Honiton.
The one of a life time’s event, is to be held on Easter Sunday 27th March 2016, will be passing through your Parish.

The route is starting from Smeatharpe Stadium at 9.30am; will travel west, to the Honiton Show Ground, stopping for a lunch and then returning back to the stadium via an easterly path.
We are looking to attract upto 500 tractors for the run, to travel the 28 miles round route during the day. All number of makes of tractors will be present, from Allis Charmers to Zetor.
In celebration of the Road Run, a Grand Draw is being held to raise funds: the first prize being a 1958, vintage Massey Ferguson 35 petrol/TVO tractor; second is £100; third is £50; as well as many other donated prizes.
We hope to raise in excess of £10,000 from this non-profit making event, with all proceeds going directly to the charities above. All efforts to date have been volunteered, resources donated, any costs incurred have been non-profit bearing.
The route will be leafleted prior to the big day, informing all immediate households of the passing vintage traffic.
I would ask for all your support in this charitable event, I also hope every spectator will wave & enjoy the tractors safely passing by. It will be a day to remember in years to come.
Richard Galling – Vice Chairman EDTMC
