VE Day Stay at Home Celebrations!

Its VE Day celebrations this Friday. The village Action Group will be decorating the village with bunting (individually & safely), and we encourage you to decorate your houses or a window, and to have a picnic in your garden from 1pm if weather permits The church bell will ring at 3pm, and we will then join the national toast, allowing all those taking part to undertake the toast at 3pm, from the safety of their own home by standing up and raise a glass of refreshment of their choice and undertake the following 'Toast' ...

"To those who gave so much, we thank you,"

….using this unique opportunity to pay tribute to the many millions at home and abroad that gave so much to ensure we all enjoy and share the freedom we have today.

However, you could take part in celebrations safely from home by joining your BBC Local Radio station initiative in making your own VE Day Great British Bunting.
