“We can still do our bit with the hoe”

Anne, our Activities Co-ordinator, is doing a series of history events and discussions with our residents selecting topics that are of interest to them. For some of our residents talking about the war isn’t something they want to do. For others, they are keen to chat away about their stories of their time working in farming, or in the forces. Being a rural area, the Landgirls was very relevant for some. After all, by 1943, there were over 80,000 women were working in the Land Army. What I didn’t realise was that there was an official magazine The Land Girl, and a special song:

Back to the Land, we must all lend a hand,
To the farms and the fields we must go,
There’s a job to be done,
Though we can’t fire a gun,
We can still do our bit with the hoe.
