This very informal event is a perfect end of season finale and is very popular with Society members who bring their working tractors, stationary engines or other farm machinery to put them through their paces. There are many enthusiasts who have a restored tractor and implement but often do not have the opportunity to work them in a true farm environment, the Working Day allows such members to use and work their machines as they were built to do.

Many members regard this as a play day but there always some real experts who will plough to the highest competition standards. Everyone is welcome to bring a machine to this event, you do not have to be a member of the society, but of course the usual insurance requirements apply. ALL EXHIBITORS INSURANCE DOCS. WILL BE CHECKED WHEN ENTERING GROVE FARM

In 2022 there will be a Tractor Road Run on Saturday Oct 1st leaving Grove Farm at 10am and returning at 2pm.  If you would like to take part contact Ken Bailey  07702202311. No admission but donations please for the Essex and Herts. Air Ambulance.

If you want to just come and watch then you will be sure of a welcome. There is no admission charge but contributions to the Essex and Herts. Air Ambulance very much appreciated. Last year, 2021, we raised £875.  Great result.
