British Boys for British Farms was the title of the hugely successful, but now largely forgotten, agricultural training scheme, run by the YMCA. Between 1932 and 1966, more than 20,000 students enrolled. A reunion lunch will be held for any BBBF boys, staff, or collaborating farmers on Tuesday 13th May at North Cadbury Court, one of the past training centres. If anyone knows of anyone who participated in the scheme and would like to take part could they please contact 01305 266197 or stephenmilner222@btinternet.com.
