What’s going on?

Since 1945 the end of World War Two in Europe has been marked by Victory in Europe Day, better known as VE Day. On 8th May 1945, Prime Minister Winston
Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before. This year,
the 8th May 2020 will mark 75 years since the first VE Day! Until the current Covid-19 crisis struck, there had been plans to stage celebratory events and street
parties in many places.

Sadly, this has all had to be cancelled but many have chosen to celebrate virtually! Holding video parties, decorating our homes or
baking to celebrate whilst we are all in lockdown!
