Commemorating VJ DAY #VJDay75

VE Day 75

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

A talented village. Made in Ebberston – pictures

What a brilliant day. The first (and maybe not the last) Made In Ebberston was a great success, and who knew there was such talent and creativity in such a small space? Well, to be honest, we did..but now you know too!

Stalls were spread across the village hall and the chapel, with 30 sellers and exhibitors. Well done to the organising team, especially Sarah and Lynne. From apple juice, to painting and photography, to model yacht-making, to jams and marmalades, to jewellery and needlecraft, to quilts, to massage, to honey, to ceramics…

From home made soaps…
to budding graphic designers…

to yummy WI cakes of course…
to flower arranging…
to handmade guitars…
to woodworking and egg laying (not actually by Geoff. That would have been something special!)
The village craft group were selling their handmade toys, while Ebberston and Allerston Youth Group drew their fundraising raffle
