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

VE Day 75 in Ebberston

Due to COVID19, the planned ‘tea dance’ could not go ahead but lots of residents took the time to put up bunting and decorate their houses for the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Here are a few pictures. If you took more around the village, please do send them on so they can be added here for posterity!
