Sadly, we can't bring you all we had planned for VE Day 75, which was due to take place May 8th. We had some wonderful acts/musicians/crafts and services all ready!
However, all is not lost - we have some great VE Day Virtual ideas all ready for you ! We've literally everything from our Bunting and Flags packs to wonderful Ely WW2 images to colour in and even a storyboard competition you can enter. Here's a selection of our resources.
Plan a picnic sytle 'street party' in your back garden and raise a toast at 3pm to peace and end of WW2, take a Selfie and send it in for a Facebook collage. Listen to our VE Day playlist and practice your Lindy Hop in the front room. We've plenty lined up, so lets not forget to mark the occasion with our own, amazing community spirit.
Here's a treat, fresh from the The East Anglian Film Archive’s VE Day compilation film is now available to watch! What ever you do, do it with a smile and maybe a port and lemon !
