Welsh National Tractor Road Run (WNTRR) Llandovery 2017 – Sunday 4th June
NVTRR | Teme Valley Vintage Club
A great run organised by Rob Jenkins and enjoyed by all. There was also a pair of converted Morris Cowleys of the mid tewnties to a tractor and a self propelled mowing machine. To complete the display there were sheep and pigs the pigs rotovated their patch. This year's run started and finished at Puxton Park, Hewish and the tractors went through some beautiful countryside to Chapel Allerton for a coffee and cake stop at the Wheatsheaf. Excellent turnout of 60 vintage and classic tractors - from a Standard Fordson to more modern classic Masseys.

The annual event, which takes place every Easter Sunday at different venues, saw over tractors convoy around the local villages. As a mark of respect a member of the local clergy, the Revd Shelagh Stacey, Incumbent at Carleton and East Hardwick, was invited, along with the Mayor of Wakefield, to give a blessing to the participating farmers before the start of the road run. As the tractors began to leave the initial meeting place, the Revd Shelagh was placed high on a platform armed with holy water and a branch, which was used to spray the water over every tractor. Once the blessings were over, Revd Shelagh joined onlookers in the village of East Hardwick as the tractors, of all shapes and sizes, drove through in a convoy. Being a part of the planning process enabled the Revd Shelagh to connect with people from the local farming community and to understand some of their concerns.
The Mid Devon Tractor, Engine and Machinery Group is a club of around a hundred members with a shared interest in working heritage equipment that meets on the evening of the third Wednesday of the month from September to May. Parking is in the street outside the Hall. From the War Memorial near the London Inn, take the right hand fork Wood Lane and follow to its end; the clubhouse will be found on the right. As the name of the club probably suggests, many of our members are active, semi-retired or retired farmers or are otherwise involved in the agricultural sector or other rural industries, with the membership drawn from a wide area of Mid Devon and, in some cases, well beyond. Others just happen to live in this part of Devon and like old tractors or whatever.
