Come and see our new display. It’s a mixture of female uniforms from the WVS  and the FANYS (First Aid Nursing Yeomanry), two items of Land Girl clothing, a fine wool day dress and WW2 era glove and dress patterns. Plus a  ‘parachute silk’ blouse and some very roomy cotton bloomers.

Local photographs add to the sense of history, as does a copy of the Parish magazine from June 1945 detailing the VE Day celebrations in Henfield.
