Celebrating Victory in Europe Day

Take a look at what we got up to for Victory in Europe Day.

Friday 8 May marked the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (VE Day), which took place on 8 May 1945, the day after Nazi Germany’s surrender during World War II.

It marked almost six years of conflict where many people had contributed to the war effort in service to their country.

For many it was a day of mixed emotions, with some hanging bunting for street parties and others remembering those that they’d lost.

To remember the day, we enjoyed lunch outdoors with fish and chips in newspaper cones. We reminisced with a 1940s memory pack, songs and a champagne toast, including some lovely Victoria sponge cake.

We decorated the garden with homemade bunting made by one of our employees along with red, white and blue balloons. Our employees also got dressed up for the occasion as 1940s land girls and we’re sure that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon!
