The meeting of the North West Lawn Mower Racing Association was at Sunfield Farm, off Freckleton Road and involved dozens of Association members on a variety of machines.

Lawn mower racing was devised as a less expensive alternative to motor racing almost 50 years ago and there was a good turnout of spectators who were invited to contribute to the fund-raising.

Organiser Stuart Polkinghorne said: “Thanks to everyone who came along.”
