Vicarstown Vintage Club are preparing for their 4th annual Threshing day on Sunday August 24, again in aid of the Saplings School for Children with Autism.
Committee member James Luttrell says they hope to again raise in the region of €5,000 for the school, which caters specifically for children in the autism spectrum.
“It is a wonderful school, they are only part funded by the government so they rely on events such as this,” he said.
A tractor, car and fun cycle run starts at 12 noon in Vicarstown village. Two threshing mills powered by steam will work all day threshing oats grown by the committee.
Farm themeed ctivities include beat the clock with your tractor balancing and digger operating skills, or guess the number of square bales making up three cocks of hay.
Bouncing castles, train rides and a barbecue will complete the fun, while a draw has prizes from a two night stay with evening meal in Cork to a fat pig, a fat lamb and solid fuel.
The committee include Johnny Luttrell, Johhny Brophy Cloney, John O’Brien, Joe Brophy and Johnny Brophy.
All exhibits and support greatly appreciated.
