PUBLISHED: 11:00 07 September 2017
A popular agricultural fun day returned this year with a record attendance.
Brampton Plough Day, at Manor Farm, attracted nearly 900 people on Sunday, September 3.
George Fisher, treasurer for the event, said: “It went very well indeed - there was an absolute buzz to the day.”
Organisers say the 27th Plough Day has raised somewhere in the region of £4,000 for charity.
This year the event was raising funds in aid of Autism Anglia and Parkinsons UK - which both stand to gain an estimated £2,000.
Highlights on the day included a display by the Lowestoft Dog Agility Display Team, Suffolk Punch horses ploughing and a selection of classic cars.
Mr Fisher added: “I want to thank everybody who attended on the day - we are already talking about next year.
“In particular I would like to thank Thomas Barne of Sotterley Estate for making the land available for free.”
