FIELD STUDY: Ongar Young Farmers, sisters Caroline, left, and Jenny Nicholls, pose for the calendar.
SISTERS Jenny and Caroline Nicholls certainly got some strange looks from passing motorists when they posed without their clothes and with nothing but a strategically placed sign to protect their modesty, for a raunchy calendar dubbed Country Girls!
The siblings from High Lavers, near Ongar, were persuaded to pose for the Essex Young Farmer's calendar, which is helping to raise £350,000 for a new HQ in Chatham Green.
As members of the Ongar group, the largest club in Essex, they were among a handful of other scantily clad 'country girls' tastefully accessorised with a variety of farm implements!
Caroline, 23, said: "Most of us had to be talked into it because we were all nervous. But luckily it was quite a warm day and we just tried to hide in this field during the shoot which lasted about an hour.
"But one of the photos was by the roadside which was quite scary. We got a few glances!"
Essex Young Farmers have so far raised £200,000 in two years for the new HQ – quite an achievement for an organisation made up of 16 to 26-year-olds.
Next up in the fundraising campaign is the organisation's Snow White pantomime, with the majority of the amateur cast coming from the Ongar club.
Calendar girl Jenny, 27, plays Snow White.
The show at Chelmsford County High School from December 11 to 13 is led by professional West End director Rachel Mosedale and promises to be fun for all the family.
