You do not need to own a machine
Welcome to the Chailey Classic & Vintage Tractor Club
Instigated by a few friends who have traditionally organised an annual tractor run in aid of charity, they have now formed the Chailey Classic & Vintage Tractor Club and membership is open to all interested parties irrespective of location and it is not a requirement to own a machine.
Vice Chairman and Parish Councillor Peter Olbrich said “A few of us over the years have grouped together to organise an annual tractor run in support of charity. Chailey Classic & Vintage Tractor Club has aligned itself to St Peter & St James Hospice which is our chosen and designated charity”.
The founder members have created a Facebook page, website and club logo and CCVTC members have already started referring to themselves as “The Chigleys”, in affectionate memory of the children’s popular television series based around Chailey and Plumpton.
The group has a committee of local enthusiasts and has ambitious plans to extend its initiative in an attempt to raise funds for the Hospice in a manner of ways, including branded products made from fresh produce donated to the Club from local farms which might otherwise be wasted and a community cinema club showing vintage and agriculturally related films.
Club Chairman, Howard Venters, said “For some time Peter, myself and a few others have been toying with the idea of formalising our collective interests and the newly formed Club, compete with constitution, bank account, logo and social media, now gives us a solid foundation upon which we can build. We have always supported St Peter & St James Hospice, a truly worthy cause and if we can raise an element of revenue for them whilst creating enjoyment and interest for others, all well and good.
According to members of the committee, interest in the tractor run and the Club generally is growing rapidly and anybody requiring further information should visit the Club’s Facebook page or contact.
