It’s not everyday that a convoy of 16 tractors takes to the streets for a 35 mile journey from Marks Tey to Chappel.

And while the thought of being stuck behind so many tractors might make some drivers come out in a rage, the event was being held for two brilliant causes.

The tractors were also joined by open-top military style vehicle which was driven by Ollie Weavers.

George Patterson, who organised the Colchester Young Farmers event, said: “It was awesome, it’s certainly not something you see every day.

“We were doing it for My WiSH and the Rare Breeds Survival Trust which is so important for our industry.

“Most of the drivers were courteous and let us out in convoy at roundabouts but there’s always some who get a bit impatient.

“But we want thank everyone who came out and showed their support along the route, especially through Tiptree High Street where we were met with many members of the public and parents who were all taking pictures and videos of us.”

The club met the Bungalow Diner in Marks Tey before heading out to Stanway and then onto Tolleshunt D’arcy.

From there, the tractors drove onto Tiptree and through High Street, before heading onto Kelvedon, Coggeshall, Earls Colne and finally ending up at Pattocks Farm in Chappel.
