Talk at the Bardsey Village Hall Friday 7th April 2017 at 7.45. “How women stepped into men’s shoes to keep the Home fires burning.
Wendy Taylor will be bringing her grandmother’s WW1 Land Army breeches and other artefacts from WW1 to support her talk about digging for victory, and growing food and crops to help feed the British population. Women were involved in agriculture and horticulture due to the men going to fight in the forces thus the Land Army was as vital in the WW1 as well as WW2. Wendy s talk will also touch on new horticultural practices of that time.
All are welcome including non members for a small fee.
