The parade set off from the Oteley Estate in Ellesmere at 10.30am on Sunday 17th March. 

The Shropshire TVO & Petrol Tractor Run took a 12-mile circular route that started and finished at the North Shropshire farm. 

The event, organised by Henry Cureton, aimed to collect funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK, a charity that works on finding a cure for dementia and associated diseases. The event raised £546.64.

Special tractor run 

Mr Cureton said: “Our run was attended by 45 tractors ranging from 1930s into 40s and 50s as well as Series II Land Rovers.  

“It was our second event. It took a huge leap in interest and support from last year. We had people taking part from over 80 miles away. I believe it is one of only a very few TVO specific runs in the UK.

“We were also provided with breakfast and a two-course lunch by Oteley.” 

Members of the ‘Shropshire TVO & Petrol Tractor Run’ Facebook group shared photos and videos from the event.
