A SUSSEX FARM DURING THE 1950s

Ian Everest describes a year in the life of a Downland farm during the 1950s. He will introduce a coloured cine-film, for which he has provided the narration. The film shows an age when over twenty men were employed on the 1000-acre farm – and forty at harvest-time.

This is a good opportunity for us to learn of the way in which farming was carried out at a time when large combine-harvesters, now commonly seen around our rural community, were machines of the future.

This event is being promoted by The Friends of St. Peter’s Church, Henfield.

Admission is by ticket - £5.00 for Members; £7.00 for non-members – available from late-September from Jasmines Florists in the High Street or by telephoning (01273) 492294.
