A small advert in the Ashbourne News Telegraph in January 2003 invited interested people to meet at Ashbourne Bowls Club to discuss the formation of a local vintage tractor club.

The first formal meeting was held in February 2003, and as they say, the rest is history.

The club currently has about 60 paid up members
