An enormous convoy of tractors kept the festive spirit alive in Larling last Friday, raising more than £2,000 for charity on its cross-county journey.

Spectators filled the streets for the annual Boxing Day Larling Tractor Run as 164 tractors set off on a round trip from the Angel pub off the A11 to Banham Zoo and back.

Shaun Garrod, first-time organiser of the run, which has taken place for the last ten years, told the Diss Express: “We were overwhelmed with the number of spectators. It felt like there were a lot more people than last year.

“This wasn’t that heavily publicised, but there was a lot of word of mouth. It was a nice day and people turned out to see family and friends. I think it went very well.”

Participants were later presented with a plaque by Angel pub owner Andrew Stammers, who was also a sponsor for the event.

The run raised around £2,500 altogether, for the benefit of Cancer Research and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
