Women’s Land Army Tribute
‘‘remembering the work of the Land Army with a lasting memorial’’
During the Great Wars, with the men away fighting, it was up to volunteer girls to work our rural lands, to help feed the war effort and the nation as well as helping to maintain wood supplies, hence the references to these young girls as Land Girls and Lumber Jill’s.
To date there is no National Monument recognising what these girls did for our country. The Staffordshire branch of the Women’s Food & Farming Union (WFU) would like to rectify this and are raising funds to provide a lasting memorial to the Women’s Land Army at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas in Staffordshire.
Nearly £38,500 has been raised so far, with many thanks to everyone who has so generously donated towards the memorial.
