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.

It should be noted that this change in boundary was not supported by Bardsey cum Rigton Parish Council. The City Council must publicise the application and seek comments from those who live, work or carry out business in the Bardsey Neighbourhood Area in compliance with Regulation 6 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012. The application from Bardsey Parish Council, along with a plan illustrating the proposed change to the boundary, the corresponding application and plan for the change to Scarcroft Neighbourhood Area, the formal notice and the response form are available at This information is also available on the Leeds City Council website at and paper copies are available to view at Bardsey Village Hall.
