During September 2022 many of our Rural Professionals, Agency, Lettings, Telecoms and Planning teams attended a number of Ploughing Matches across Kent and Sussex.
Weald of Kent Ploughing Match
The first Ploughing Match Batcheller Monkhouse attended in 2022 was the Weald of Kent held in Hawkenbury, Kent. The day was full of activities for all to enjoy, from a trade machinery parade, gun dog demonstrations and terrier racing to prize-giving in the afternoon. We enjoyed seeing many clients for a chat over some locally sourced pork pie and beer.
Laughton Ploughing Match
At the Laughton Ploughing Match, held on the 21st of September, Batcheller Monkhouse sponsored the Education Section as well as having a stand. Local schools attended with groups of young children to learn more about farming and all that is involved throughout the farming year.

There was plenty to watch with both ploughing and hedge laying competitions throughout the day.
