As well as watching the ploughing demonstations, visitors at Rainbow Rural Centre's open day on September 22 explored the gardens, met the horses and refreshments.

Carol Monk, farm owner said: "The atmosphere for the day was lovely, and after the initial drop of rain, the sun came out and everyone had a lovely time. The activity that stood out for me was watching and listening to all the brightly coloured vintage tractors ploughing our field. These old tractors have a certain sound that is very appealing, and if you are old enough, takes you back in time when most villages would hear this as Autumn arrived."

Rainbow Rural Centre held several open days during spring and summer and their next open event is expected to be in April 2020.
