Bank Holiday Opening Hours and VE Day 75Posted on May 07, 2020
This VE Day we will be celebrating 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the Second World War
The war had brought devastation to Europe and nations across the world, and when the fighting came to an end it was a happy day for all those who had lived through the pain that war brings.
It’s important that we continue to look back and remember how terrible that time was for everyone, so on the 8th May we remember all those who lost their lives during the War, but we also celebrate their brave efforts to bring about peace.
With coronavirus affecting our daily lives today, we find ourselves celebrating at home, but that shouldn’t stop us remembering the sacrifices that were made.
🇬🇧🇬🇧 So we invite you to join us from home to celebrate VE Day 75 🇬🇧🇬🇧
11 am: Take a moment of reflection and remembrance as the country pauses for a two minutes silence to honour the service and sacrifice of the Second World War generation.
3 pm: Our Team and many households across the country will be celebrating VE Day from their homes with a picnic in the garden.
9 pm: It’s time for the Big VE Day singalong. Stepping out onto our doorsteps at home to sing our rendition of Dame Vera Lyn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’ to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day
Stay Safe, Stay Strong
