Message from the Chairman:
It is with great regret that the 2020 WKPMA Ploughing Match will be cancelled due to COVID 19. The Committee and I all agree that for the safety of all who attend our match we have had no choice.
We look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s match in 2021 and I wish you all well.
Why not get involved with VPlough 2020!

A BRIEF HISTORY
The Weald of Kent Ploughing Match Association (WKPMA) came in to being in 1947 following the amalgamation of the Marden Agricultural Society and the Sandhurst Ploughing Match Association.
The physical size of the match has grown and it has undoubtedly become more important to the local farming and agricultural community. Ploughing remains the main focus of the event. It is a skill which has also evolved, as ploughing by tractors with no cabs or sophisticated hydraulics has given way to a mixed entry of modern, vintage, steam and horse ploughs.
