The Tillage event will go ahead as planned tomorrow (Thurs 13th Sept 07), despite the announcement that foot-and-mouth disease has been confirmed in Surrey.

Those planning to attend the cultivation equipment demonstration near Abingdon in Oxfordshire are being urged to take full bio-security precautions.

Organisers are asking visitors to ensure they disinfect their vehicles and clothing before leaving home. On arrival, all vehicles entering the site will be required to drive through a wheel-wash.
