  • Description

    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unknown / unclear.

    Part-time volunteers work on the land at Godstone in Surrey.

    Various shots of young men and women at work in fields of a farm, picking vegetables, pulling up weeds and so on. People picking carrots and pouring them into sacks. Beans are poured into sacks.

    General view of a barley field. C/U of barley growing.

    Men and women volunteers get off a lorry at the end of the day and walk towards a field of tents. They go into a hut with mugs and plates to get some food. Some older men and women seen among them.

    Outside the hut a man and a girl play table tennis while others watch. The girl isn't very good, but everyone seems to be having fun.

    Cataloguer's note: wonder if there were any romances among these holiday workers?
