South Muskham and Little Carlton Fete sees John Deere tractor attract more than 1,000 visitors
A quirky village fete gave visitors the chance to sit on one of the UK’s largest tractors last weekend.
As well as the opportunity to take a seat on a John Deere 9629; the South Muskham and Little Carlton Fete offered carousel rides, axe throwing, a bouncy castle and slide, a straw maze for children to get lost in, a tug of war — and even the chance to see a meerkat and skunk.
Resident Charlie Brightmore said: “First of all, thank you very much to everyone who came on Sunday.
“With this being Little Carlton’s first ever village fete in three decades, it was a huge success.
“Throughout the day we had over 1,400 people attend the event in aid of the air ambulance, raising over £5,500.
“This was truly a classic country fair at its best from tombola and guess the weight of the tup, to the biggest tractor in the UK on display.
“The day after the event I had parent contact me saying their children had so much fun. We are already planning next year’s event with funds going to the air ambulance and a local charity in Newark.”
