Jim's Tractor Run made its annual way through Ashby, Blackfordby and Moira last weekend - before taking over the Bath Grounds in the afternoon.

A parade of vehicles came through Market Street last Sunday morning and headed out of town up Burton Road - returning via Moira Road.

They ranged from modern farm vehicles and vintage tractors, to classic cars and delivery vans.

The Ashby de la Zouch Town Council-backed event returned last year for the first time since the pandemic.

And, as usual, large crowds turned out to line the route.

The event, organised by Jim Hoult, is held in support of Hospice Hope.

A video clip of the vehicles travelling through Market Street can be seen on the Ashby Nub News Facebook page.

Here are some photos from last weekend's event along with John Blackett's video of the event showing the return to Ashby,
