12 photos from the 2020 New Year's Day tug of war in Ayton
Crowds gathered to watch the traditional New Year's Day tug of war in Ayton yesterday (Jan 1).
Teams from East Ayton and West Ayton battled over the River Derwent, with the team from the East emerging as the victors. The event raised money for St Catherine's, Macmillan and Mind. The teams wore T-Shirts with 'Pulling for Pete' printed on them in dedication to villager Pete Taylor who died last year.
