Organisers are gearing up for the fifth annual vintage tractor and classic car road run at Loanends Presbyterian Church on Saturday, June 7.

Proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to the Parkinson’s Disease Society.

The vintage vehicles will assemble at the church car park at noon.

Departing at 1pm, the tractor cavalcade will complete a 15 mile route around local country roads; while the vintage and classic cars will embark on a 25 mile scenic drive.

The entry fee is £10 per vehicle, which includes lunch for the driver.

Robert Wallace said: “Everyone is welcome, and entries will be accepted on the day. The event is now in its fifth year, and we are looking forward to another successful and enjoyable day.”

The vintage road run will coincide with a summer fete which is taking place in the church grounds from noon. There will be various stalls selling home produce, crafts and plants, as well as a variety of entertainment for all members of the family. The summer fete has been organised in aid of church funds.

Mr Wallace added: “I am delighted to welcome a number of new sponsors. Noel Gibson of GNG Credit Ltd based at Lylehill Road, Belfast, and Richard Martin of Martin Supplies, Nutt’s Corner, have weighed in to support the vintage tractor road run.

“Thanks also to the Eye Care Clinic based in Templepatrick, for its continued sponsorship of the classic car section.”

Anyone interested in entering vintage tractors or stationary engines should contact Robert Wallace on 028 9443 2753. Vintage and classic car enquiries should be directed to Norman White by phoning 028 9443 2269.

Loanends Presbyterian Church is situated on the Seven Mile Straight, approx six miles from Antrim town.
