HAS ANYBODY ANY UPDATES ON THIS ITEM 

HELP TO FIND STOLEN FERGUSON 

A devastated family have appealed for help after a vintage tractor they have owned for 60 years was stolen from them.

The Beadman family say they believe the grey Massey Ferguson tractor, that has been used for the Braunston May Fair to transport the May Queen, was stolen from sheds in Knossington Road in Braunston at some stage on Sunday or Monday evenings.

Stolen tractor from Rutland (5813312)

Fiona Harbot Beadman, said online: “Our beautiful grey Fergie tractor was stolen we think on Monday evening from the Knossington Road in Braunston-in-Rutland.

“We believe it was spotted in Somerby at around 7pm and Melton around 8pm on the back of a red Beaver Transit tail truck.

“A similar tractor was stolen from Waltham and CCTV has been posted of the truck they believe that was involved which looks similar to the one that was used here.”

Anyone with information should call Leicestershire Police on 101

DOWN IN THE DEEP DARK FOREST WITH PIP 

The run was an outstanding success there were over 40 Land Rovers and 30 tractors taking part on the day.The run started from the Moseley Green, and we headed into Yorkley then through the Forest and over to Mallards Pike.We spent the next few hours in the thick of the Forest! where the gallant band meet some of the Hills and Dales you did not know were in the Forest.Lunch was taken at Hopewell Colliery who put up with us filling the Car Parks!. If you would like to join a Club Road Run,we will be happy to have you come along. We will be giving out details on this site ,so keep looking in. Well done Pip as always a good day spent out and around the Forest of Dean.
