Last year's tractor run was a success

Chairman of the Ousevale Cluster of Young Farmers '“ which includes 18 to 26 year-olds from South Axholme, Goole, Newport and Howden areas '“ Charles Mason, said this year's event would be held in memory of the group's former administrator, Jill Pearson, who died following a short battle with cancer earlier this year.

Funds raised from the event on Sunday,  December 23 will go to Yorkshire Cancer Research. It will once again see tractors decorated in tinsel, baubles, decorations and anything that represents the festive season.

And Young Farmers' members are asked to get creative and come up with their best tractor designs. The event is organised by the Ousevale Cluster of The East Riding of Yorkshire Federation of Young Farmers Clubs.
