Friday 8th May
Happy lockdown birthday Leah 🎂
The amazing cake was made by Robyn. She made a very big mess but she did a very good job 👍
And also Happy VE Day!
Victory in Europe Day. It marks a very important event in World War 2, the end of the war with Germany on Tuesday 8th May 1945.
It’s a day that remains in the memory of all those who witnessed it. It meant an end to nearly six years of a war that had cost the lives of millions, had destroyed homes, families and cities, and had brought huge suffering to the populations of entire countries.
A public holiday was declared. People held parties, danced and sang in the streets and huge crowds gathered in London.
My mum was a Women’s Land Army girl too 😍
We celebrated the 75th anniversary by going to watch one of our neighbours singing for us all.
(He also sang Happy Birthday to Leah much to her embarrassment!)
Even the cars did their bit 🇬🇧
