Vintage tractor aids Goff Oil delivery to Aldborough Community Centre

Vintage tractor aids Goff Oil delivery to Aldborough Community Centre

A 72-year-old tractor showed that age is just a number as it came out of retirement to rescue a snow-bound oil tanker.

The tanker became stuck in the snow while delivering central heating oil to Aldborough Community Centre, before it was eventually pulled to safety by the 1949 Field Marshall tractor.

Local resident Guy Fiske was woken from his lay-in to find the Goff tanker wheel-spinning on the village's icy roads.

And, when he left his house later on, he could not believe his eyes when he saw the vintage tractor rescuing the tanker.

Our heating oil tanker drivers have found some of the conditions in the rural areas challenging and dangerous. The impact of the snow and conditions experienced varies hugely, with some villages having good accessibility whereas others are cut off for HGV vehicles. Our team have many years experience but none can claim they have 72 years worth.
