About The Author:
Holly has created a documentary, aimed at adults about the Women’s Land Army and the history of the Suffolk Punch Horse and it is clear that the future of these two important subjects is being lost. It is therefore paramount to share tales with the next generation to create that spark and keep these stories alive. Find out more about the documentary here.
