Illuminated tractor parade
Thornley Tractors annual illuminated tractor run around Ashbourne and the surrounding villages is back, on Saturday 17th December 2022. The tractors and machinery will be decorated for everyone to enjoy with a few new additions for this year! As last year, the lights are in memory of Helen Mead and Diana Higton, treasured mums and grandmothers, taken far too early by cancer.
If you enjoy our lights, donations can be made by visiting https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/ashbourne-christmas-tractor-lights-2022
There will also be collection pots at some of the pubs along the way for cash donations.
