As VE Day dawns on 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the Second World War in Europe. To commemorate this important event a national three-day celebration will take place from 8th May to 10th May 2020.
Friday 8th May 2020 has been designated by the Government as a Bank Holiday to enable as many people and organisations as possible to take part in the VE Day weekend of the 8th – 10th May 2020, providing an opportunity to pay personal tribute to those who gave so much to ensure we all enjoy the freedom we have today. https://www.veday75.org/
With a theme of ‘Invoke the War time spirit and make do and mend’ – why not use local produce, be plastic free, make re-usable decorations and make it a ‘car-free’ day?
