Although it wasn't widely advertised, the Isle of Wight Ploughing Match took place at the end of September. 

The Isle of Wight Ploughing Match has been running annually since 1947, but Covid restrictions last year meant the day couldn’t happen.

The ploughing match committee made the decision several months ago to go ahead with this year's event, but on a much smaller scale due to the pandemic.

With thanks to Mr and Mrs Neville Smith, the match was held at Bowcombe Farm.

There were 37 tractors and ploughs competing, which was down from previous years, but the committee belives this was down to Covid.

There were no trade stands, exhibitors or food and beverage facilities at this year's event.

Although this event was not publicised, there were many people attending who have been coming to the ploughing match for a number of years.

This year saw a change in judges, normally they would be from the mainland, but it was great to have both ploughing and tractor judges who are local Islanders.

The committee said ploughing conditions were fairly good this year, but some ploughmen with classic and vintage tractors struggled to plough because the ground was so hard due to the long spell of dry weather which preceded the event.

It was an unusual ploughing match compared with the last 20 years, but the ploughing committee hope that next September will see the return of a bigger event.
