Exciting news for 2011

I am pleased to announce that the date for the next Memorial Ploughing Match will be Sunday 3rd April 2011.
  It may still seem a long way away, but planning has already started.  I have secured a very large piece of land at Atherfield and this means that next years match can be bigger than ever and hopefully raise lots more money for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.
  Wightlink have been very kind to us again and have agreed to fund the Judges transport and have agreed a reduced rate for Ploughmen who wish to come from the mainland and plough.  Most exciting of all for me, is that they have agreed to fund the crossing of some Horse Ploughmen and their teams to the Island.  It has been a dream of mine since the first ploughing match in 2009 to have a horse ploughing class in memory of my Grandad.  I have my fingers and toes crossed that it may just happen next year.
