VE Day Celebrations
Holding a VE day street party in lockdown may mean holding a picnic in your front garden, or on your doorstep, and decorating your home in the national colours. If the weather isn’t kind, you could always host an afternoon tea indoors with your household – and invite extended friends and family to join you on a video call, using a platform such as Zoom.
You could raise a glass of juice to the heroes of WW2 from inside your home at 3pm on 8th May, "for those that 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.
We will be making bunting this week and having a picnic lunch at home with scones, jelly and cucumber sandwiches. Send us in pictures of what you get up to tomorrow!
