Friday 8th May is the 75th anniversary of VE Day. VE Day is also known as Victory in Europe Day and marks the end of World War Two. To help us commemorate this milestone, we have put together a number of different activities.
If you can, please send in some photos of how you have chosen to celebrate VE Day to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add onto the website next week. Nottinghamshire County Council is encouraging residents to undertake the nation's toast for the Heroes of WWII from the safety of your own home by raising a cuppa at 3pm and toasting...
“To those who gave so much, we thank you.”
