How the Pershore Plum Won the Great War, edited by Jenni Waugh and Maggie Andrews, published by The History Press 2016.

PHHS members contributed research to this book published for the WW1 in the Vale HLF-funded project, together with members of Pershore Women's Institute who celebrated their centenary in 2016. The Heritage Centre will have more copies soon, but it is also available from various outlets in Pershore and online from the usual suspects.

Copies of the WW1 trail are still available for free from the PHC. An expanded, updated, and better illustrated version of this trail will be available on the website soon.
