The 75th anniversary of VJ Day (Victory over Japan) will be recognised on 15 August 2020 and commemorates the end of the Second World War.
The village looked splendid with the VE day decorations earlier in the year, so while we cannot organise any social events, the village hall committee is urging you to do the same again. Reminders will also be posted up around the village.
Come together with your neighbours with tea, cake, drinks*
Put your bunting and flags out!
Saturday 15th August 2020
