John Deere donates pedal tractors to Alnwick Garden

Young visitors to the Alnwick Garden in Northumberland are benefiting from a donation of tractors from John Deere.

The miniature fleet of 20 ride-on pedal tractors are now available for children to play with in front of the garden's Grand Cascade fountains.

John Deere has donated the tractors for the next three years to support the garden.

The Duchess of Northumberland said: "Our miniature fleet has always been a great hit with younger visitors and the tractors get their fair share of wear and tear, so we're delighted that John Deere has offered to support us in this way."

John Deere managing director Richard Johnson added: "We are very happy to make a contribution to the public's continuing enjoyment of this magnificent garden."
