East Sussex Ploughing Match Society are very pleased to announce that the 2021 match is going ahead on Saturday the 25th of September, this will take place at Priesthawes Farm by kind permission of Mr Chris Wadman, and Ian the right-hand man who has always been very helpful with any just job’s that do occur from time to time, a very big thank you to both, as most of you are aware the host selects a charity, this year Mr Wadman has chosen for his charity is the Huntington’s Disease, in which the society donates a large proportion of its profits to, this year the ploughmen are not receiving any prize money as all prize money will be going to the host’s charity, as with many charities, whom have found raising funds very difficult over the last twenty months.
At this years ploughing match will have nine ploughing classes mainly made up out vintage and classic tractors and ploughs, there will be some more modern equipment ploughing as well, the horse ploughmen hopefully will be in attendance with some horticultural ploughmen. Ploughing will commence at 10 o’clock and the time aloud is for hours.
There is going be a domestic section this year with not so many classes some being withdrawn this year for covid reasons, for details please see the entry form on the web site, this is a great opportunity for everyone with crafting skills to show of their talent, also vegetables and flowers these will be for all age groups, so good opportunity for children to get involved with their parents hobbies and pursuits, please come along and join in this popular part of East Sussex Ploughing Match.
Another part of the ploughing match has been the inclusion of a FUN DOG SHOW, we have ten classes, all the details can be found on the web site, this is run by Mr Rupert Cyster with the assistance of some younger team members.
Trade stands have been invited to attend, so the local dealers will be in attendance, as well as craft stalls.
