Jack Prew’s ancient ‘Fergie’

jackprewonhistractorJack gave the ‘Fergie’ to Milton Parish Council to use for cutting the village green grass and he serviced it for many years. When the Council wanted to sell it years later, Jack bought it back to preserve it for future generations. Andrew his grandson has restored it to this excellent Show condition; the photo shows him arriving at the recent Milton fete.

The ‘Fergie’ brings back happy memories for me. I learnt to drive on the ‘Fergie’ when I was 11 years old (1954) on a farm turning over the potato crops for the gangs to pick up. Congratulations and thank you to Andrew for keeping Jack’s standard grey ‘Fergie’ on the road for all of us to see.
