Promoting Peace – Victory in Europe Day…

When Victory in Europe Day dawns on May 8th, it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe. To mark the occasion, events will be held across Great Britain.

VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe. The holiday will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events.

“The 75th anniversary of VE Day will provide our nation and our friends around the world with an opportunity to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life,”

This is an opportunity for our Rotary clubs to take part, organise events and pay tribute to those who gave so much to ensure we all enjoy the freedom we have toda

A list of activities planned for the May Bank Holiday weekend can be found on the VE Day 75 website and it is hoped many Rotary clubs will take the opportunity to get involved. All clubs registering events on the VE Day 75 website will be able to download a specially designed certificate.
