A Wealden Woman's War
October 2014 Monthly Meeting

Colin Fairman, our Vice Chairman, introduced the proceedings with a resume of the new groups being offered, the suggested short courses, and the groups we are sharing with Westerham U3A. To find out more about these, click HERE

He introduced Penny Harris, our speaker for October, who gave us a fascinating talk entitled "A Wealdon's Woman's War" based on a true story of two people who met around the second world war and became publicans and small-holders in the local area, All this was based on the book by Edwina Hall - Potholes, Pigs and Paradise.

She brought to life the real life stories of these two people and took us back nostalgically to the trials and tribulations of their lives.

We thank you, Penny, for such an entertaining insight into the lives of these people.s during the war, including the joys, the love and the funny side of the tale.
