75th anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe)
Preparations for the celebration had been in motion for years, and well before any notion of lockdown.
These plans had to be adapted rather postponed in order to fit with rules around social distancing. However, these altered plans still afforded families across the nation the opportunity to celebrate VE Day in their own homes and streets, giving us all a much needed morale boost.
At Grange Park, we received many photos and videos of the children reflecting upon the efforts and sacrifices made by the WWII generation and celebrating in style. Some wrote letters to veterans including Sir Captain Tom Moore, street parties were attended, baking was completed, bunting was made and songs were sung. It would seem that many enjoyed the festivities.
