The Weald of Kent Ploughing Match Association held another successful Plough Match at Poplars Farm in Horsmonden on Saturday 14th September 2019. With blue skies and the sun shining the day was a great success. The association is very proud to announce that £7,500 will be donated to the following local charities: Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt, Bolebroke Beagles, Cardiac Risk in the Young (in memory of Ben Hammond), Dandelion Time, High Weald Academy Young Farmers Club, Homewood School Young Farmers, Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust, Medical Detection Dogs, NLL's Young Farmers' Club, R.A.B.I, Riding for the Disabled Association, The Bridge Trust, The Farming Community Network and the Weald of Kent Young Farmers' Club. The Chairman’s charity of choice this year is CHILD, a charity very close to the heart of our Chairman.
The Weald of Kent Plough Match invited people to enjoy a fun-filled day including Clay Pigeon Shooting, Gymkhana, Terrier Racing, a Raffle, the Tossing of the Sheaf and most importantly a very successful and cheerful Ploughing Competition.
The association wishes to thank our hosts Mr A Watkins and Mr R Stevens for allowing this event to take place and to BTF Partnership for their invaluable and continued support for the 2019 event.
