Virtual VE Day celebrations
Friday 8 May 2020 marked the 75th Anniversary since the day guns fell silent in Europe at the end of the Second World War. To commemorate the occasion Mid Sussex District Council awarded grants of £250 local groups towards local events in the community.
Sadly, the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent social distancing measures meant that the planned community celebrations could not take place. However, we didn't want the day to pass without recognition so we asked our residents, Councillors and Council staff to share their photos and memories to help us commemorate a Virtual VE Day for 2020.
The response was tremendous and we were able to create a short video. We hope you like it.
