Father-of-three Alan Dimbleby, 62, died from his injuries after being thrown from the sprayer at Warren Barn Farm in Woldingham on 24 July last year.
More than 40 tractor drivers formed a cortege in tribute to the popular agricultural worker when his funeral was held.
At the inquest into Alan’s death, jurors heard how he was spraying crops on land used for pheasant and partridge shooting.
The fete will start at 11.30 with a procession from the Broke Farm Recreation Ground with the May Queen and others in fancy dress.
The traditional village fete will feature a May Queen, tug-of war, horsey hopper derby, pot of gold, lob the loo roll, fun dog show and much else. The Model Railway Society will have an exhibition in the village hall and a full steam loco on the green.
Please note that Rushmore Hill will be closed to traffic for about 30 minutes from 11.30 am. Then there will be normal two-way traffic but please observe the temporary NO PARKING signs. If the weather is fair (no rain for previous 48 hours) you can park at the Broke Farm Recreation Ground.
If you want to lend a hand, please turn up to the village green at 8 am. For any further information please contact Lesley Jones on 01689 854204 or lesleynigel (at) yahoo.co.uk
