NEWCOMBES Meadow was a busy place on Saturday, June 18 when Crediton Congregational Church held its first Family Fun Day since before covid restrictions.
Queues were certainly the order for that day - for the free barbecue, face painting, inflatable Gladiator type duel and more. Scalextric track was another popular tent plus a lot more going on with the games.
Members of Mid Devon Tractor Engine and Machinery Group were there with at least a dozen tractors ranging in age from a 1947 David Brown Cropmaster VAK1C to a 1982 Massey Ferguson 575.
In between was the “platinum” 1952 grey Fergie TED 20 belonging to Michael Coleman of Coleford.
Someone said: “What a great year to have made this tractor and Coronation Chicken in the same year.”
There were three “little grey Fergies” altogether, all the tractors drawing the attention of many children as well as the two stationary engines as well as at least one tractor from Okehampton Ploughing and Vintage Machinery Group.
Lots of cakes had been made by members of the church and even dogs were catered for with bowls of water around.
