Harvest No More

Primary school children were once encouraged to harvest Rose Hips and were paid 3 pence per pound, old money. Pocket money then was half-a-crown or 10lbs of Rose Hips!

The Rose Hips were sent to Delrosa (the only brand in town) to make their iconic Rose Hip Syrup

A spoonful of Rose Hip Syrup every day was a must in winter to boost vitamin C and ward off colds.
