On 8th May 1945, after 6 years of war, peace was finally declared in Europe. Some 75 years on we are gearing up for the 75th celebrations of the Victory in Europe (VE) that will take place during the weekend of 8th-10th May 2020. There are a number of planned activities of remembrance for the fallen and celebrations to mark those celebrations that took place back in the day. The general idea is that the celebrations should have a similar format but take place in our local towns. Councils have already received a letter from Bruno Peek of SSAFA the Armed Forces charity, you can read it yourself here. In addition to catch up to the minute news why not visit the special VE day website.
