On Wednesday 8th May, we had a fantastic VE Day celebration with decorations, our tables laid out as if it were a street party laden with wine and jam roly poly. At 3pm we turned on the wireless to listen to Winston Churchill’s famous speech declaring that the war is now over! Our residents burst into spontaneous singing, accompanied by Malcolm on the piano.
Throughout the week we also had other VE day activities: flag making, a VE Day special quiz, England v Germany team bingo and watched a movie “A Royal Night Out” based on Princess Elizabeth and Margaret’s night out on VE Day.
A fantastic time was had by all.
