Working Vintage Festival 2018


I would like to thank everyone who supported our 2018 working vintage festival by taking part in the Friday night road run or attending the main event on Saturday. There were exactly 200 tractors in the road run and we were impressed by the turnout on Saturday. A big thank you to all who contributed in any way - both public and club members, we really appreciate your support and we hope the whole event helped bring the community together, gave everybody a good day out and will eventually help some worthwhile local causes. Because of your support the event was a great success, thank you one and all.

Queens Award for Voluntary Service



The County Down Traction Engine Club is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the 2018 Queens Award For Voluntary Service.


This award, which is the equivalent of an MBE, is for groups rather than individuals and represents a tremendous achievement and I am honoured and delighted that our voluntary work in preserving our agricultural and cultural heritage within the community has been recognised in this way. It is the first time a Vintage Club has received this award.


I am especially pleased for all the club members who have contributed so much of their time and efforts over many years and for the local community and sponsors who have supported us so loyally along the way.
