On the Saturday of Glastonbury Carnival we started the day by recoviering the Decortaed Tractor from the old Half-Way Inn, we would like to say a big thank-you to the new owners for looking after the tractor all week.
Another big thank-you must go to Martin from Frost Recovery who came out to recover the tractor with his new HGV recovery truck. This saved a a lot of time and was by far the safest method of recovery.
Sadly due the the soft ground surrounding the shed entrance, Martin was unabe to reverse the lorry and tractor into the shed, so we had to call in another favour and ask Dave Branfield to bring round his JCB and put the tractor away.
Earlier in October we suffered a failure of the injector pump which led to the engine racing away, if it hadn't been for the quick thinking of Ken Boobyier we may have lost the tractor much earlier. We'd like to say a big thank-you to our friends ats at Hickleys in Bridgwater for reconditioning the pump at such a good rate.
We are very fortunate in Westonzoyland CC to have so many good friends and we would like to thank all those who have helped us with the tractor this year.
