Hundreds enjoy Ingworth Trosh

Hundreds of visitors turned out to a farming 'trosh' held at Ingworth on Sunday to raise funds for three local churches.

Attractions at the annual event, which was held on fields belonging to local farmer Peter Spink, included threshing and baling demonstrations, a dogs' scurry, a farmers market and a barbecue and cake stall.

Tractor owners took part in a ploughing demonstration, while farming machinery on show ranged from vintage tractors and classic cars and motorbikes, to modern-day machinery including a beet guzzler and a combine harvester.

Mandy Witham, who is part of a team of organisers headed by her husband Alan, hoped the cash raised on Sunday would equal, or even top, last year's �5,300 total, which went to Erpingham, Ingworth and Alby churches.

'The weather held off for us and everything went really well,' she said. 'We sold out of all 300 burgers on the barbecue and the scurry was really popular - there were dogs everywhere.'
