This weekend, Brackley Town Council will be hosting our third Christmas Tractor Run on Sunday 10 December. This involves a "rolling" road closure in a number of areas in Brackley from 6pm on Sunday evening.
The areas affected are Poppyfields Way, Humphries Drive, Pavillons Way, Banbury Road, High Street, Buckingham Road Junction, Burwell Hill and Northampton Road. The roads will be closed for the shortest time possible to allow safe passage of the tractor convoy.
If you live on Poppyfields Way or Banbury Road, please ensure vehicles are not causing any obstruction and if possible, park in designated parking areas or driveways where possible.
PLEASE READ IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS BELOW
The convoy will leave from Sainsbury’s car park at approximately 6pm. We would like to stress that NO residents will be allowed on the Sainsbury’s car park before and after the route starts. Due to the large convoy this year, safety is paramount and therefore the run will be delayed if residents do not abide by our health and safety guidelines. It will not be safe to leave if residents are roaming the area. To confirm, the Sainsbury’s car park will be closed off to spectators, our marshals will be patrolling the area.
We would much prefer to spread yourselves around the run to give the drivers the best reception on all roads – please give them a wave when they go past! Thank you.
We apologise for any inconvenience during this event and if you have any questions regarding these closures, please contact us on 01280 702 441.
Don’t forget that the Brackley Christmas Tractor Run is all in aid of the charity Yellow Wellies – an award-winning charity that supports the physical and mental wellbeing of UK farmers. A few pounds can make a big difference. Please donate here via our Just Giving page, alternatively there will be bucket shakers roaming around the route on the evening.
Thank you for your help and understanding during this event.
