Cherish Watton is currently an MPhil student in Modern British History at Churchill College, Cambridge. She graduated with a First Class Honours degree in History from Lucy Cavendish College in July 2017.
Before studying, Cherish set up in business, working as an eco-consultant and social entrepreneur for Cherish Watton Enterprises in Norfolk. Her work has focused on running environmental residentials, evaluating programmes and developing opportunities for young people to seize the potential of the Green Economy based upon their interests, passions and experiences with environmental issues at school and college.
Cherish also founded and runs www.womenslandarmy.co.uk, a website on the work of the British Women’s Land Army during World War One and Two. Cherish is developing the website so it becomes the national online hub for information on the Land Girls and Lumber Jills – sharing original documents, magazines, photos and videos.
