Dan Lydiate will be in attendance to judge the Best Decorated Tractor and Best Dressed Driver with prizes given by Wynnstay.

The club is also holding a raffle which will be drawn at the end of the Tractor Run. To purchase tickets please see one of the members. There are a number of great prizes on offer including Christmas hampers, two-course Sunday lunch for four people at The Wheelwrights Arms, Erwood, afternoon tea for two at The Celtic Manor, and two any one-day adult tickets for the 2023 Royal Welsh Smallholding & Countryside Festival.
