First topic message reminder :

if you are at home, furloughed and want some fresh air, why don't you join the Land Army and help bring our harvests in.

Food shortages are a real possibility if our crops rot in the fields.

Tom:

Britons needed to 'lend a hand' with harvest
Environment Secretary George Eustice says only "around a third" of migrant workers normally expected for the harvest are currently in the country.

He says this means Britons will be required to "lend a hand" in bringing in this summer's fruit and vegetables.

He says UK citizens interested in signing up for the work can now register their interest on 'Pick for Britain' website.

got a conformation from Jotform, to say they have my application, They seem to be using Temp employment agencies to find and set out the T's & C's, I understand its easier for them to do that but, there;s now middlemen taking a slice of the pie, they will charge the government for finding the men and chargeing the men for finding them work,

anyway faint heart never kissed a pig so I'll go along and see how it goes, Very Happy

lots on the radio about it today, there are thousands of English volunteers, the problem is the agencies, they are doing what they do, processing applicants and shuffling papers, One bloke's advice was, Go to the farms and present yourself, work direct because the agencies are in it to make money, not to help the farmer nor the applicant,
I think that is good advice and my next avenue to venture up,
