Vintage day in aid of air ambulance

A vintage day at a Scarborough farm has raised a welcome £803.55 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The event took place at Dave Ward’s farm at Carr Lane in East Ayton and featured a number of attractions.

These included vintage tractors, engines, cars and motorbikes. There was also a car boot section, bar, tombola, stalls and refreshments.

Crowds were also treated to live music from local band Freefall.

There was also due to be a ploughing match, but this was postponed to October 7 as the corn was not yet ripe and ready to be cut.

Mr Ward said: “It went really well and we were pleased with the amount raised. We were lucky to have the weather on our side.”

Mr Ward presented a cheque to Jean Dixon of Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The show results are as follows: vintage cars: 1st Steve Thomson (Daimler), 2nd Mr Malton (mini van); motorcycles: 1st Ray Walker (BSA Bantam), 2nd Peter Rogers (Peugeot); tractors: 1st John Aconley (John Deere), 2nd Paul Flinton (Massey Ferguson); senior engines: 1st Pete Rogers (Ruston Hornsby), 2nd Jamie Townsend (Petter); classic car: John Martinson (Lotus); Gordon and Brian Ward Memorial Bowl: Jamie Townsend.
