Boys in Datchet were growing potatoes to help feed the country, while children in Cookham and their parents were putting their savings in the care of the government, for use in the war.

The potatoes were set, the weather most favourable & the boys are employed in the half-acre “Victory” Plot until further notice.

The War Savings Association continues to do good work. The takings this week were much above the average, and reached £20-5-5.
