A Vintage Tractorey Sort of Day, Palgrave, Suffolk - 21st June 2015

The vintage cars-and-tractors show-type-thing is on again at Goodrich Park on the edge of Palgrave and seeing as it's only up the road we head over to have a look. It seems that most of the locals are there as well. Afterwards we meet up again with Marc and Sue and decide to have an impromptu spot of lunch over at the Oaksmere.
