The convoy will include both vintage and veteran vehicles right up to modern tractors as they arrive in Manea through Westfield Road.

It will continue on and out of the village via Wisbech Road and Fodder Fen as it then heads towards Tipps End and Welney and then turning back into Christchurch where the convoy will stop at the Dun Cow for lunch.

They will then make their way to March entering the town via Upwell Road, turning into Elwyn Road and then round the Market Place and back out through High Street on its return journey to Wimblington.

A group of volunteer collectors will be accompanying the convoy making a bucket collection in aid of Magpas Air Ambulance. In the past the tractor run has raised over £2,000 for the charity.
