Hill shared he expected only 20 or 30 tractors to participate when he first came up with the idea. However, “every farm in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire sent a tractor or two,” he claimed, along with other vehicles. He said he had the National Farmers Union’s, local companies’, and the council’s support, and all he wanted to do was bring people together. “It was totally amazing. I can’t thank everyone enough. Everyone has gone to town”, said Hill. Carla Pilsworth from Garden House Hospice expresses her amazement and gratitude, and shares that it is “what the community needed.” Photographer Roman Turney from Hitchin stated that it was wonderful to see a parade of vehicles covered in festive lights for a great cause.
