Wexford Hospice Homecare and Caim Senior Citizens will benefit from the annual Caim Vintage Club road run and threshing.

Chairman of Caim Vintage Club Paddy Buckley said the day had been a great success with everything going off without a hitch.

'It was a very good day and everyone really enjoyed it. We started with the road run and this was followed by the threshing which was very family friendly.

'We had a lot of vintage tractors and cars on the run, with many people coming from outside the county to take part which was great to see.

'The threshing then was on land owned by Robert and Peggy Rackard. We cut oats there two weeks ago so we did the threshing then on the day. We had a lot of vintage machinery on display including a corn sower.

'There was also a barbecue, bottle stall, bric a brac, cake stall and a display from Caim Men's Shed. Eamon Redmond also displayed a model train railway. Everyone really enjoyed the day.'
