Club member Gavin Waddell was recently involved in cataloging machinery and farm equipment for an auction held by Fife Employment Action Trust’s Silverburn Park. Pictured below is Gavin along with Club Chairman John Sinksi who presented a cheque to Duncan Mitchell, CEO of Silverburn/FEAT at the Club’s January meeting.
The club chairman, John Sinksi and treasurer, John Eccles were pleased to present a cheque at our December meeting for £420 to the East Fife and Scooniehill branch of the Riding for the Disabled Association. The money was raised from the club’s annual road run earlier this year, so a big thanks to everyone who contributed.
Here are the results of the second Fife Vintage Agricultural Machinery Club match held at Inch Farm, Pittenweem on Sunday 21st November 2021. The combined score achieved from both matches will decide the class champions and the Reserve and Overall Champion all of which will be announced at the clubs next AGM when the trophy’s will be presented.
Congratulations to all the worthy winners and thanks to all the competitors who took part in the match. Thanks also to everyone who helped organizing and setting up the two matches this year.
