VE Day Celebrations 8th May
11.00am A two minute silence will take place at 11am, which will be broadcast on the BBC.
3.00pm 'The Nation's Toast to the Heroes of WW2' is scheduled, with people across the country standing up and raising a glass of a drink of their choice while saying the following toast: "To those who gave so much, we thank you." It would be great if as many people as possible could do this in their front garden or doorway.
3.15pm (aaprox.) After the official toast our very own Colin Williams will be performing a 30 minute concert from his home, playing a variety of WW2 tunes on his piano. Colin is aiming to live stream the performance on Facebook so let’s try to tune in. More details will be given about how to access the streaming.
4.00pm onwards The weather forecast for Friday is looking good so how about a picnic or afternoon tea for your household in your front garden if possible, but if not then wherever suits you best. There are lots of recipes available online so you can replicate some 1940s dishes if you want to have a go.
