Book Review with Margaret Mills and Goodbye Edd Buckley

Margaret Mills

Margaret Mills

Today it was time for Margaret’s monthly book review.

“A Green and Pleasant Land (how England’s Gardeners fought the Second World War)  by Ursula Buchan, (paperback, non-fiction), published 2014  by Windmill Books, price = £9.99.   As WW2 began in earnest, the people at home took up a challenge  – to help feed the nation.  Suddenly, nearly everyone  at home in England – men, women and children, gardeners and non-gardeners alike –  decided to “get gardening for victory”, growing fruit and vegetables in every available space.  This is a factual, often very humorous, and gripping account of  how ordinary people helped to win the war on the home front – there was even a Radio Station growing its’ own veg. and transmitting a programme called ‘Radio Allotment’!

You can listen to Margaret’s review here –

Also today it was time to say goodbye to our work experience student Edd Buckley. Edd is studying drama and has had acting roles on TV and appeared in commercials and documentaries. It was a pleasure to work with Edd and to see he has over 25,000 followers on twitter. That’s about 24,700 more than me! He also supports various charities including Papyrus that aims to prevent suicide in the young. A fine young man. Come back soon Edd!
