Cropton High Street Tractor Rescue
Saturday 19th March 2011
It is the time of year to spread fertilizer on the land, but whilst doing this job a local farmer conked out in the village high street. His tractor unfortunately had a flat battery.
Ever helpful our villagers came to the rescue. Before you knew it a tractor was assembled to tow the tractor and pulling chains came from all directions.
The first chain used to tow the tractor broke but luckily there were more chains on hand.
As news spread more tractors and helpers appeared on the scene. By that time the tractor had successfully been re-started.
It was then time to catch up on some local news.
Many thanks to Sue Coombes from the Cropton Heritage Group for these photos.
