CHARITY RUN: The Chailey Classic & Vintage Tractor Club annual Christmas Charity Run, this year in partnership with Tinkers Park (Steam Charitable Trust), took place in somewhat inclement conditions. Nevertheless, the heavy rain failed to dampen or diminish the spirits of the many who turned out, suitably attired, to participate in and enjoy a road run of vintage and classic tractors (and cars) all in support of St Peter and St James Hospice. Around twenty tractors consisting of various makes and models assembled at the Sloop Inn (Scaynes Hill) where Maria Caulfield MP was amongst those who waved them off. With pit stops at the Bent Arms, Snowdrop and Farmers Inn, the convoy of tractors and vintage vehicles travelled to the bemusement of Christmas shoppers and many smiling children. All returned to the Sloop for an evening of Christmas celebrations including live folk music courtesy of Newick Folk. Local producers consisting Nose to Tail Butchers Piltdown, Fletching Village Shop and Cottage Bakery Newick kindly sponsored and provided the barbeque. Local musicians ‘LOKI’ provided added musical entertainment and there was also an auction of promises, coupled with a raffle. These along with donations resulted in a contribution to St Peter & St James Hospice in excess of £1,800. Many thanks to all who donated money, time and produce to make the day so enjoyable for all who took part and another success fundraising event for the Hospice.
