Fiona Warin - The Land Girls

Cossham Hall       27 April 2020    13:00

In 1942, with the country at war, food production was vital and had to be increased but with fewer agricultural workers available, some 80,000 women were urgently needed to work on the land.

As well as ploughing and dairy work, the women who became Land Girls also carried out hedging and ditching, developed lambing skills and learned how to plant, cut and manage timber for a variety of industries. Their work was crucial to the war effort.

Come along to a "recruitment" session when Fiona Warin appearing as head of the Thornbury branch of the Women's Land Army, will detail the different jobs to be done as a Land Girl, the uniform, the digs, the social life and more. Who knows, she might even offer you a job!

Fiona is allotment officer at Cheltenham Borough Council and makes a welcome return to Thornbury after giving a well-received talk on the history of allotments last year.
