VE Day 2020
As you may be aware, 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day. To mark this special occasion, Friday 8 May 2020 has been made a bank holiday, with a national programme of celebration to be held. In West Bradford, the Parish Council will host an “afternoon tea” to which all residents are invited.
Other activities planned for this event include:
a Fancy Dress competition, with all adults and children invited to come along in wartime dress (prizes for the winners)
a free drink at 3pm, when the toast to celebrate the end of World War II will take place across the country
and singing of wartime songs by the U3A choir.
Arrangements and timings are yet to be finalised, but the event – which is free to all residents - will be held in the Village Hall in the early afternoon and concluding around 4pm.
The bar will be open throughout. Final details of the event will be circulated nearer the time, but we hope all residents can come and join an afternoon of celebration in a party atmosphere.
