Ploughing Awards

Following the recent Ploughing Day at Vale Farm, two awards have been made to those who demonstrated their ploughing skills at the event. These were made at the latest Friday Night gathering at the Village Hall where the presentations were made by Chris Thomas.

The “Duke of Denton Cup”, created many years ago for local ploughing competitions but only recently returned to the village, went to the Best Ploughman of the Day, John Chapman. Not the one currently resident on Trunch Hill but another JC who used to live on Norwich Road but moved away some time ago. In accepting the trophy he said how great it was to be back in the village again.

The other award went to the youngest competitor, Alex Bolderston, aged 13, of Chapelfield. Despite his youth, and commitment to goat husbandry, he had demonstrated his skills as a tractor driver in a most impressive way. As you can see, his prize was some guidance on how to do it even better!
