Presentation to Belfast City Mission
CDTEC was recently pleased to present a cheque to Belfast Central Mission in support of their new Copelands Dementia Centre being planned for the old Childhaven site near Millisle.   The funds were raised by a tractor road run held in the Ballyhay area, near Millisle at Easter. Raymond Strain, from Ballyhay, is seen making the presentation to Brian Burns, the director of Belfast Central Mission. 

















Our thanks go to all those who helped organise, or participated in, the event. This is the fourth donation the club has made to good causes in the last year 


CDTEC 2015 Working Vintage Festival

The CDTEC 2015 working event will take place on Saturday 8th August in Rosemount Estate, Greyabbey - the sixth year we have been based in this beautiful site. We will have all the usual attractions, activities and exhibits that our visitors like to see and we should have access to two working fields so, in addition to the pick your own potatoes and harvesting and threshing of oats in the smaller field we should also have big classic tractors ploughing and cultivating in the large field. There will also be tractor pulling and other activities yet to be confirmed.

In the main rally field we should also have the usual displays of tractors, cars, lorries, steam engines, amusements, autojumble, trade and food stands with lots to do for the whole family. And of course there will also be live music and entertainment throughout the day.

On the previous Friday Night there will be the now famous Tractor road run with over 200 tractors over a route through the surrounding countryside, and the barbeque with live music provided.
