When VE Day dawned on 8th May 2020 it was 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of World War Two.
This, the 75th Anniversary of VE Day provided our nations and our friends around the world with an opportunity to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through this dark and terrifying period.
During those war years there was much activity across our three villages and we wanted to share our research into those war years and memories of those who remember it, with our community during the weekend of 8th – 10th May, but sadly because of the Coronavirus Pandemic this had to be postponed.
Meanwhile VE Day in our villages was celebrated very quietly.
A World War Two Memories day took place on Saturday18th September 2021 at the New Victory Hall, Neatishead and included much of what was planned for our VE Day Anniversary in 2020.
