Fylde Vintage and Farm Show hailed as 'best yet'

The event’s auction of tractors and farm machinery is at 1 pm on Saturday and will again be in aid of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Crop farmer David Martin, who is show organiser and who owns the land in Salwick Road, Wharles, near Kirkham, where the show is held, will be auctioning a blue 1975 Ford 4600 tractor from his collection of tractors. Whatever price it fetches will be donated to Rosemere.

Since 2018 when David auctioned his first tractor for Rosemere at the show, he has raised more than £15,000 for the charity, including additional money he has raised through winter farm machinery auctions and also, performance fees donated by Wigan Ukulele Band, a show favourite for years again playing this year .

A wealth of farm machines will be on display

Tickets for the show are £10 for adults, £3 for children (five to 16 years), £8 for concessions and £24 per family (two adults, two children) .

There are also weekend passes at £16 for adults, £5 for children, £12 for concessions and £35 per family. Saturday tickets include evening entertainment.

Tickets can be bought at the showground or online at www.fyldevintageandfarmshow.co.uk, where full details of all three days are available.
