Tractors roamed across Wyre as they helped to raise money to build a new church roof.

The Winmarleigh tractor run raised £600 on entry fees alone, with organisers describing the atmosphere as “fantastic”.

Over 50 tractors, old and new, attended the event which saw them meet on Saturday at 4pm at Winmarleigh Village Hall.

Over the next two hours the tractors made their way through Cockerham, Thurnham, Glasson Dock, Lancaster, Dolphinholme, Scorton and back to the village hall.

The £600 was raised by each participant paying an entry fee and the annual event chose the church after it approached the group asking for its support.

Fylde Countrylife Preservation Society organised the event and chairman Mick Briggs said: “We were definitely helped by the weather and it was a fantastic atmosphere.”
