RHOSGOCH YFC’s chosen charities are set to receive their share of £1,750 after their ‘super’ annual tractor run.

On Sunday, 60 tractors and a few 4x4s thrown in for good measure turned out for the annual Rhosgoch YFC tractor run raising funds for club’s charities.

Despite the start being slightly delayed because of the Wales rugby match, most of the community came out and watch the tractors trundle their way out to Painscastle over Rhulen Hill to Cregina, where a right was taken to Glascwm, over to Colva and onto Gladestry. Then in slight of Dolyhir Quarry a left was taken for the convey to wind their way along the lanes to Yardro and the dinner stop at Knapp Farm, Walton by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Andrew Price.

The raffle was drawn at Knapp Farm and the John Haydn Meredith Memorial Trophy for the best turned out tractor was judged by last year’s winner AJ Williams and was awarded to Geoff Pilliner for his Fordson Dexta by Andrew and Tracey Price.

After dinner it was off again down to Walton and over to Old Radnor, back to Dolyhir, which saw the tractors doubling back to Gladestry. Here a left was taken to head over the hills to Michaelchurch and Newchurch and the homeward stretch back to Rhosgoch.
