VE Day 75 - Celebrate at Home

VE Day 75 - Celebrate at Home

This year, Friday 8 May is the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day. VE Day marked an end to nearly six years of World War II, and in towns and cities across the world people marked the victory with street parties, dancing and singing. While street parties are not currently an option, you may wish to re-create that war-time spirit in your own homes.

Combatstress.org.uk are offering a free virtual party party pack for those who register on their website:

https://www.combatstress.org.uk/ve-day

The virtual VE Day 75 'Celebrate at Home' Party Pack includes: ideas for wartime rationing party food, 1940's decorations, songs, dances, and hair and fashion of the era to help you have a brilliant 1940's inspired day (and night).

You can also enter a competition to win one of three prizes which will be awarded to the winners of the most entertaining photos:

1st Prize: Print of Red Arrows over Niagra Falls during their America/Canada Tour 2019, signed by current Pilots and Support team.

2nd Prize: Luxury Food Hamper (including highly coveted toilet roll)

3rd Prize: Bronze Poppy

Parties are only to be held within households and adhering to up-to-date Government social distancing guidance, therefore no external guests including friends, family or neighbours are to join (unless virtually).
