VE Day 75
Victory in Europe Day
On 8 May 1945 church bells rang and people cheered to share their joy- a national day of celebration for the end of the Second World War.
In 2020 instead of commemorating this joyous day with street parties and parades as planned, the world is in lock-down due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
This important moment will not go unacknowledged however, and for many this time of reflection and gratitude will be all the more poignant due to our temporary seeming loss of liberty. A small price to pay for the safety of our loved ones and to protect the NHS.
No matter how we each choose to commemorate the moment, we all join the world in thanking those who came before us; those who made possible the freedoms we currently miss so much. To them we say thank you. To each other we say We’ll Meet Again.
