Come and listen to Joanna Foat talk about the often forgotten, dedicated army of women who took on heavy manual labour, foresting and logging, during WW2. Find out what life was like for the Lumberjills in the 1940s, how they pioneered new fashion for women and why Joanna has been so inspired by them.

The meeting will also cover business issues, but still leave time for refreshments and the raffle.
