FLINTSHIRE Vintage and Classic Tractor Society were out in the sunshine this weekend rekindling memories of yore.

On fields loaned by Edwin and Jo Hughes of Cornist there was a cornucopia of vintage vehicles and contraptions being put through their paces by eager members.

Club secretary Julia Hodson sent us some superb pictures of the event which managed to go off smoothly, although the going was somewhat soggy underfoot - and wheel.

The sight of some rare and beautiful old machines brought out the public, including some starry-eyed children to see what all the fuss was about.

Although there were some fine examples of bygone workhorses used on farms of yesteryear, we eventually selected this picture of a different kind of horsepower.

These beautiful working horses from Flint were also supported by two fabulously facially hirsute gentlemen guiding the plough in their wake.

We hope you like our choice.
