Slide 4 - Remembrance
This year it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day. To commemorate the event, the early May bank holiday (usually a Monday) has been moved so that the bank holiday is the same day as VE Day – Friday 8th May. There will be special events taking place on that day and across that weekend when everyone will give thanks to those who served in the war and to remember all those who lost their lives.
Due to Covid-19, many planned celebrations have been cancelled, but this just makes it all the more important that we commemorate the day. We can be together, even though we are apart. Remembering what happened during the Second World War - indeed in all wars and times of difficulty - is important for so many reasons.
Why do you think it is important that together we remember VE Day?
