PUPILS at Barley School were treated to a visit from a new Massey Ferguson tractor.

Children sat in the cab of the tractor, which was loaned to the school by Royston-based company Mark Weatherhead, and learned about the role tractors play in farming and producing our food.

And the children have also been given two sit-on pedal tractors to enjoy, courtesy of Massey Ferguson.

School governor John Elliott, who organised the visit, said: "As a parent governor, I felt it fitting to present the children with this opportunity as they have been studying farming, and the fact that Massey Ferguson is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year makes the day extra special."

Head teacher Julie Price said: "We are so grateful to John for organising this visit, and to Massey Ferguson for their generosity to the school.
