A SPECIAL church service will take place next month to pray for a good year for farmers.
The annual Plough Sunday ceremony at a Tickhill church will see a horse drawn plough wheeled down the aisle.
The service will take place at St Mary’s Parish Church on Sunday, January 7, beginning at 6pm.
The old horse drawn plough that is kept at the back of the church will be wheeled down the aisle by members of the town’s farming community.
They will then join the congregation to pray for a successful year in the fields.
The plough was made about a century ago by G Patrick and Son of Thorne near Doncaster.
