Fun on the Farm

The sun shone, for most of the day, at Glebe Farm yesterday and everybody attending Dentill 2011had a great time.

The third running of this biennial event attracted more than 700 people who enjoyed great displays of ploughing, harrowing, threshing etc. The traction engine powered threshing operation was a magnificent sight as were the fascinating displays of vintage vehicles, agricultural and otherwise. The children’s activities, including a sand pit, pets’ corner and donkey rides, were very popular. Througout the day the food tent and bar did a roaring trade and the Mustang’s flying display was an added attraction.

The organisers would like to thank all the many volunteers who gave up their time to make the event such a success and in particular Malcolm Skinner for providing the excellent venue. The total sum raised, for charity, was over £4,000.
