She will touch on the importance of life skills, passing those skills on to the next generation, ecological and domestic importance of not wasting resources, budgeting and cooking from scratch – and having the power to change the world, one darned sock at a time.

She brings a display table of wartime artefacts and ephemera, and there is also a fun quiz with prizes identifying period objects.

The evening starts at 8pm tomorrow and will held in the lounge of the Rothwell Conservative Club in Market Hill, Rothwell.

It is a free event and non-members are welcome.
