Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A WOMEN’S Land Army event is be­ing planned for the Great Barn, in Har­mondsworth.

The his­toric venue at Manor Court will dis­play war time photos and ex­hibits on Satur­day, Septem­ber 19 from 10am to 5pm.

At 3pm there will be a re-en­act­ment of the world of the Women’s Land Army pre­par­ing their horse for a day’s work.

Mu­sic will be pro­vided by the Band of the Mid­dle­sex Yeo­manry (Duke of Cam­bridge Hus­sars) in the early af­ter­noon. The day will also be an op­por­tu­nity for visi­tors to view The Great Barn fol­low­ing ex­ten­sive re­pair work and the Church of St Mary’s the Vir­gin, which dates from 1067.

The Friends of the Great Barn are keen to hear from any sur­viv­ing ‘Land Girls’ or their fam­i­lies, par­tic­u­larly if they have any pho­to­graphs which could fea­ture in the ex­hi­bi­tion.
