Memorial 2010

  The Memorial Ploughing Match was held at Mottistone Manor Farm by kind permission of Tod and Jackie Carder on Sunday 28th March 2010. This was the second year the match has been ran and was organised to remember four ploughmen who sadly all passed away in 2008. The four ploughmen were Stephen Hayles, John Attrill, Derek Young and Den Phillips. 
  The 50 ploughmen all paid a minimum donation of £5, further money was given by sponsors of the event, donations on the gate and a raffle and a total to date of £1705 has been raised in aid of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.
  Karen Sheath said "this was the second year of the ploughing match and as fantastic as the first year we ran it. Despite the terrible weather in the week before the event, the rain stayed away until everyone had left for the evening. The most fantastic thing about the whole day was the great atmosphere amongst the competitors and visitors to the match."
