East Dorset Trac Pack's Easter Bunny Run
John Maiden - Dorset Representative reports:
The sun shone, and the tractors turned up for the Easter Bunny Run. So much so that we nearly ran out of room at the start in the Barley Mow pub car park. The route took us through the crowds waiting in Wimborne Minster to see the Vintage Agricultural Convoy. This was followed by a leisurely trundle through the River Stour and Tarrant valleys.

Lunch was at a firm pack favourite, the Witchampton Club, where more spectators came and viewed. After lunch it was over into the East Dorset area taking in many small villages including More Crichel, Horton and Holt before returning to the Barley Mow for some much-needed liquid refreshment.
Isle of Wight Working Day Saturday 16th April:
At Chapel Furlong Farm, Hulverstone, Isle of Wight, by kind permission of Todd Carder, by David Leominus.
Following a 2 + year drought of working days we were lucky to be offered a field at short notice to shine up our ploughs and try to hone up our ploughing skills. We had about 15 tractors turn out on a beautiful spring day in a situation overlooking the English Channel and the Needles area of the Isle of Wight. Needless to say, there were a few rusty ploughs which struggled to get going in the very dry soil, but eventual success prevailed.
We welcomed quite a few Ford and Fordson models - a couple of Standards driven by Glen Draper and David Thompson and a newcomer to the fold Lisa Hurrell with her Super Major. Two other Majors, a Dexta, two 4000s pre-force plus a 5000 Pre-force and a 5000 Force with a NH TS90 completing the line-up.
Following donations made during the day we were able to send £500 to the local Earl Mountbatten Hospice.
