In previous years the Vintage tractor working day was organised by Landscape services, however this year the event is being taken on by Buchan Development Partnership.

BDP development officer, Leona Findlay, said:: “The Aden Country Park Heritage day event is always a popular event especially with vintage machinery enthusiasts and this year’s event will be a working tractor event featuring ploughing up at Hareshowe farm.

"Registration forms are now available and anyone who would like to display a vintage tractor is asked to get in touch. Due to the volume of tractors we have at this event we will only be accepting vintage machinery that has been registered in advance.”

Children will also have the opportunity to have donkey rides around the park on the day.

Leona added: “We had miniature donkeys at Aden for our Easter event which were so popular with visitors of all ages that we decided to have larger donkeys along to the heritage event to do donkey rides.”

The day will also offer an exciting array of traditional activities and crafts in the courtyard.celebrating the best of Aberdeenshire’s rich heritage and ancestry. There will be demonstrations from local crafters throughout the day including corndolly making, lace making demonstrations and woodturning.
