Stoll’s 75th Anniversary of VE Day Celebration
Due to the Coronavirus emergency and subsequent Government guidance, we are unable to continue with our plans for a formal VE Day 75 celebration on May the 8th. We need to ensure that people stay safe and follow government guidance on social distancing.
In order to say thank you to our brave heroes of World War II there are some things we can do from the safety of our home to celebrate the 75th Anniversary and using this unique opportunity to pay tribute to the many millions at home and abroad that gave so much to ensure we all enjoy and share the freedom we have today.
A Toast: We encourage residents to take part to in the ‘Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WW2’ at 3pm on Friday 8th May, by standing up at home and raise a glass of refreshment of your choice and undertake the following ‘Toast’ – “To those who gave so much, we thank you,”
A Singalong: We encourage residents to view the VE celebration broadcast on the BBC. At 9pm on Friday 8th May you can join-in for a UK-wide rendition of Dame Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
We hope you are able to celebrate in whatever way you can, there are some additional resources such as home-made bunting and posters available on the government VE Day website:
