VE Day 75th Anniversary

This Friday marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day, marking the end of WW2 in Europe. Due to the current situation, many celebrations and commemorative events have had to be cancelled, but true to the British spirit many people are coming up with their own ideas to mark the event. My own street has organised a “drive party” in place of a street party so we can celebrate safely as a community from our driveways, and people will be making their own bunting, flags and treats. The famous Bletchley Park (home of the code-breakers of WW2) will also be providing a virtual celebration, as well as a resource pack filled with ideas on how to celebrate like a person in 1945.
