The Will's Girls archiveThe best employer in Bristol. The biggest in Bedminster. WD & HO Wills. In 1953 it's a job for life, a good wage, and a cigarette allowance. Cyn's 21 and wants to be a beauty queen. Vee's 22 and newly wed. Glad's 41 and a survivor. The huge factory and confident women make 15 year old Mae nervous. But Wills's Girls play hard too, and Mae is swept to the cinema and dances to Kay Starr and Perry Como. Bill, their mysterious supervisor, never looks twice at his glamorous factory girls. Now there's a challenge...Based on real stories and experiences, The Will's Girls celebrates Glad, Vee, Cyn and Mae and the individuality of ordinary lives.
