Over 30 vintage tractors from as far away as Huddersfield, Selby and Retford will assemble at the Mowbray Arms from 8.30am, to leave at 10am on a route all around the Isle.

Organisers Geoff Fillingham, Stuart Lindley and Richard Thompson will start the convoy on their 30-mile trip. On their return to the Mowbray arms, there will be a grand raffle with an auction conducted by Andrew Houlden.

All proceeds will go to the Lindsey Lodge Hospice in Scunthorpe.
