This is a 1953 tractor, nearly as old as I am and in perfect working order.

Every year Bernard Blashill, aka The Welwick Relic, raises thousands of pounds for charity. His farm hosts an annual Heritage Weekend, the Easington Bike Ride and numerous auctions to name but a few. Yesterday it was the Christmas threshing day. Bernard and a group of friends keep alive these old farming traditions and raise money for good causes. The money is then handed over to the charities at special events in the local village hall. Even then we have an auction and raffle to raise even more money.
