VE Day – Our at home celebration of Victory in Europe Day 8th May 2020
Message from Wincanton Town Council
This year, our community celebrations within the town for the three days of commemorations have changed; however, our resolve to pay tribute to the many millions at home and abroad that gave so much can continue in our homes and gardens.
The national celebrations have been shared on our local social media with exciting activities for children and families to create their own experiences at home. Further information is available on the www.veday75.org
This is a time to remember and share stories of our hero’s in families and communities. We have a unique opportunity to celebrate in a different way this year.
I am sure as a town we will come together at 11am for the two minutes national silence to remember the declaration of victory and the end of the Second World War in Europe.
Finally, it is heart-warming to hear of the many homes in our town that will host family parties over this time.
Stay safe and enjoy the celebrations in your home
Cllr Shelbourn-Barrow and Cllr Tudgay
