Unfortunately due to the current crisis, plans for commemorating the 75th Anniversary of VE Day had to be cancelled. However, please listen to Dane Sound Community Radio who are creating a programme of music, interviews and more to mark the occasion. www.danesound.com
Here is the programme of events which they have compiled for the day:
3pm: The Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WW II
We would like to encourage you all to still take part in the Nation’s Toast from the safety of your homes to pay tribute to the many millions in the United Kingdom and overseas who sacrificed so much to secure the freedom we have today. We would invite you stand at 3pm and raise a glass or cup of refreshment of your choice and undertake the following toast: “For those that gave so much, we thank you.” This will be the first time such a tribute has ever taken place so please encourage others to join in from their own homes.
