Record run as tractors roll

THERE was a record turn out for the winter tractor run organised by the Market Rasen Roadrunners

The charity event saw 75 vehicles setting off from Skinners Lane for Nova Scotia and on through the Wolds villages of Walesby and Tealby.

And the trail of tractors certainly was a sight to see as they made their way back through Market Rasen.

“Our first run of the year was really well supported,” said roadrunner John Lingard.

“The turnout was fantastic for the winter run, more like the numbers we would expect for the summer event.”

The runs have grown in popularity since they began more than ten years ago and this year’s event saw a further £1,333 being raised for the Urology Department at Lincoln Hospital, which gives treatment to those with prostate cancer.

The summer run is scheduled for July, again starting from Skinners Lane, off the A46 Caistor Road, at 10am
