Horham bygones country rally looks as if it is going to bigger and better than ever this year.

Originally started in 2002 as a one-off event to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee the rally has gone from strength to strength and become an annual feature in the small Suffolk village of Horham, near Eye.

The event - on Saturday June 13, from 10am until 5pm - was hoping to attract more than 100 historic tractors for the first time this year. But early entries mean organisers are setting their sights on up to 150 machines which will join historic military vehicles, cars and motorcycles, along with working horses and mules.

As well as being a big draw for anyone who wants to see old farm machines and horses in action, the rally is also a big fun day for all the family as there will also be fairground rides for smaller children and a car boot sale among the attractions. Last year about 1,500 people attended.

Not only does the event generate much-needed funds for the Horham Community Council, it also offers other charities the opportunity to attend free of charge to promote their organisations and raise funds.

The contact for rally information is Gary Woodrow on 01379 740496. For car boot only, call Ron Chambers 01728 685583. All pitches must be pre-booked.
