Speaking after the sale James Morrish of Kivells said: “Holsworthy has become the biggest monthly sale venue in the South of England for agricultural and horticultural equipment.

"It continues to see crowds of 500-800 people to the site on sale days with many travelling from outside the Westcountry and spending money at B&B’s and restaurants on the evenings prior and after the sale which helps supporting the local community.

"As always, Mary Phillips conducted a bucket collection on behalf of the Devon Air Ambulance which contributed towards the £400 which has been raised at the Holsworthy Machinery sales already during 2019."
