A large crowd came from Rochester to see the tractor exhibition.

Rochester’s St Vincent de Paul Society took a group of 30 residents on a trip to John Cox’s farm on Restdown Rd on Wednesday.

Vice-president Gavin Houlihan said the trip was to give older people in the community a day out.

He said Mr Cox offered to show residents around his vintage tractor and wagon display.

Visitors saw a display of John Deer, Bulldog, Chamberlain and Case tractors and six settlers’ huts, which dated back to 1871.

Mr Cox said the group had a ‘‘marvellous day’’ and he was pleased to display his vintage vehicles and huts.
