New Book by Peter Blee: The Bloomsbury Group in Berwick Church

This is the third in a series of film evenings to help our Benefice Mission Fund in Kenya. Ian Everest, the renowned local Sussex historian, will give another of his fascinating talks about olden days farming, this time on the highly topical subject of the Women's Land Army, which did so much to help feed the country in WW1 and WW2. Entry will be free; light refreshments will be available, with donations to the Kenya Mission Fund most welcome.

Ian Everest comments: “My mother was one of the 80,000 Land Girls during WW2 and the talk includes some of her personal memories and a potted history of the role of women on farms during two world wars. This illustrated presentation shows what a debt our country owes to these “Cinderellas of the Soil”, with their vital contribution in feeding our country only gaining official recognition many years later after their disbanding in 1950.”
