Open day attracts district’s farmers

BRIAN Robinson Machinery, of East Cowton near Northallerton, celebrated the opening of their new larger premises with an open day earlier this month.

The business sells agricultural machinery and has a thriving workshop and parts business.

In the past 30 years it has grown from being housed in a small workshop, to a 6,500sq ft building, with an additional 9,000sq ft to be added this year.

The open day was also used to celebrate agricultural machinery brand Valtra’s 60th anniversary.

Christine Robinson used the open day to raise awareness of the Coast to Coast walk she’s undertaking to raise funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
