17mph tractor travelling on a road near you shortly
IF BEING stuck behind a tractor frustrates you, you might want to think again before travelling around west Penwith later this month.
Burnham-On-Sea Rotary Club plans to trundle through the area as part of its 'tractor run' – raising money for a number of air ambulance trusts in the South West, including Cornwall's.
Members of the organisation are due to begin their 480-mile journey from Somerset on August 22, arriving in Cornwall's far west a few days later and passing through Hayle, St Ives, Zennor, St Just, Land's End, Newlyn, Penzance and Marazion, before heading back to the charity's headquarters in Dorset along the coastline.
The team hopes to cover 50 to 70 miles a day, reaching a top speeds of 17mph, and will be looking to stop and fundraise with local rotary clubs along the way.

The group was inspired to take up the challenge after a farmer and Rotarian (club member) suffered a fall – and was saved by a fast-acting air ambulance. The team hopes to raise £7,000.
