A Vintage Ploughing Day took place between East Allington and Slapton on October 9.

It was the brainchild of Roger Gilbert who wanted to do something in memory of his friend Shaun Turner who died suddenly in May 2019. Vintage tractors were a passion of both men.

Around 15 tractors, including members of the South Hams Vintage Machinery Club, friends and family came along to plough the field and many others came to support the day.

The weather was good and £715 was raised in Shaun’s memory, which has been donated equally between MIND and The ManKind Initiative.

Local farmer Norman Eastley allowed the use of the field Mile Lane. They had generous donations from local businesses - The Bear & Blacksmith, Dartmouth Dairy, The Fortescue Arms, Tesco’s Kingsbridge, Annabelles Cake Boutique, Morrisons Kingsbridge, Haddys & NFU Totnes. There were also home made cakes baked by friends & family which meant all the proceeds from the refreshments could be donated to charity.
