Tractor World Scotland & Classic Commercial Show 2018

A new event for your diary this spring is the Tractor World Scotland & Classic Commercial Show at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston on Saturday March 24th and Sunday March 25th 2018. The show will have Veteran, vintage, classic and new tractors on display, along with farm machinery from the 1950’s to the 2000’s. There’ll also be a special celebration of the centenary of John Deere Tractors.  If you are looking for parts and spares, there will be a number of trade stands at the show along with many regional and national tractor clubs. Alongside the tractor show is the Classic Commercial show, with a drive-in day of classic commercials on the Sunday in addition to static commercial displays over the weekend. Horticultural and Static Engines will also be featuring over the weekend, so there’s something for everyone. For anyone looking to buy or sell equipment, Pentland Auctions will be holding a large Vintage Auction Sale on the Saturday (24th) in the Lowland Hall.

The FVAMC will have a stand at the show where we’ll have this year’s top prize in our Raffle on display – an International B275. Come along and visit us on the stand where we’ll have tickets on sale for this years Raffle to win this superb tractor, or one of the many other prizes. This year we are supporting rugby legend Doddie Weir’s My Name’5 Doddie foundation which provides funds to aid research into Motor Neurone Disease. So come along and visit us on the stand and support this year’s raffle. If you’re not already a member, find out what we do and the events we organise, such as our Annual Rally, Agri-jumble sale, Tractor Road Run and Ploughing Match along with our regular club meetings.

Well it’s club meeting time again. This year we have an exciting guest coming along – Mr Doddie Weir, Scottish rugby legend!

So come along one and all to Lomond Hills Hotel, Freuchie tonight, Wednesday 10th January at 7.30pm. Meet the legend and hear about the fantastic work he is doing to beat MND and the support the charity can provide.
