Reaseheath College recalls land girl training in VE Day celebration

Reaseheath College revisits its links with World War II to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday May 8. Photos from Reaseheath’s archives recall the outbreak of war in 1939 when the college, then named the Cheshire School of Agriculture, closed its doors to students and became a training centre for the Women’s Land Army and the base for the War Agricultural Committee.
