In Charnwood Arts’ “People Making Places” project, we plan to remember the women,
local industries, villages and legacy in attitudes to war and peace.
For example, did you know that Quorn was responsible for supplying the vital war-work
of elastic production?
If you wish to become involved, or have anything that might contribute, contact Kevin

By April 1918, 90% of shells were being made by women and the number of women workers
in British industry as a whole was approaching 3 million.
