Tractors in schools special - don’t miss tomorrow’s supplement
To celebrate Suffolk’s rich agricultural heritage and the contribution our farmers continue to make to the local economy, members of Suffolk Agricultural Association took time out to visit schools across the county.
Hundreds of primary and secondary school pupils watched on as tractors pulled up into their school playgrounds during Tracors in Schools week.
Farmers taught children about the work they do in the fields of Suffolk - known as the bread basket of England because of the quantity of food produced here.
Phillip Ainsworth, chief executive for the SAA, said: “Thanks to all the schools and all the SAA members who freely gave up their time to share their knowledge.”
Tomorrow we will be publishing our annual Tractors in Schools supplement featuring photos from dozens of schools in Ipswich and elsewhere in Suffolk.
