On Friday 11 September 2015 in Lighthorne Village Hall at 8.00pm, Dr Val Brodie will be talking about “Bandages and Fresh Air – Southam women in World War One”.
‘Bandages and Fresh Air’ traces the story of the Southam Red Cross Hospital and the women and girls who, as volunteers, cared for the wounded. It has been brought to life by the memories and stories of their descendants told to Val Brodie, and her talk is illustrated by a unique set of photographs from the Southam Heritage Collection.

With best wishes
