Not only did we host lots of lovely cars and tractors at Sunny Bank at the weekend but we also finished painting the unofficial world’ s longest carrot (we couldn’t find  one longer!) , printed our own little swarm of bees – 1766 , served what felt like hundreds of cups of tea and, with the help of some great judges (thank you all) including Stuart Andrew, our local MP,  found a well deserved winner for our “Fast Cars and Tractors” : DB Aston Martin and DB Tractor competition.

First Prize: Darren Walker

for his “re-engineered “ scarab beetle (the source of the famous Aston Martin “wings”)

Second Prize: David Questa

for his painting of the DB2/4: beautiful work and lines.

Third Prize: Josie Barraclough

for her mixed media piece “Pink Roses & Cornflower”;

Highly Commended: Mel Davies

for “Over the Hill” and Elena Putley  for “Cold War, Hot Engines. All the work, including that of the amazing runners up, can be seen and purchased at the Mill until mid October. These include Paintings, Photographs, Prints, Memorabilia, Ceramics and Glass by local artists that applauds the heritage of David Brown Heritage and Aston Martin in Farsley. Thanks to all our exhibitors for the time and effort put into their contributions. We love your imagination and the quality of the work.
