Cheques totalling more than £5,000 were handed over to worthy causes after a very successful Skeyton michaelmas trosh.
The presentation evening was held at the Goat pub in the village with £1,500 each given to Skeyton village hall, Skeyton church, and Buxton sea scouts.
Skeyton village sign replacement fund received £500 and Phoenix Bird of Prey Rescue, £200.
Organiser Graham Kirk said: “The committee regarded this as quite an achievement to be in a position to donate such a large amount of money.
“Of course, all outside events are weather dependent and it was an exceptionally pleasant early autumn day.”
When the trosh started 10 years ago just 50 people attended, but more than 900 people came in September to see vintage tractors and watch displays of ploughing, threshing and baling at the site between North Walsham and Aylsham. Next year’s event is on September 30, 2018 at Brecks Farm, Skeyton.
