VE Celebration during Lockdown 8th May 2020 & Memories of 1945.

Memories from 75 years ago 1945.

Edwinstowe VE Day May 1945

People came out into the street at midnight, and there was live bugle and drum music. Hundreds went to a military camp for a singsong in the Sergeant’s Mess. A camp-fire was lit and fireworks were let off.  The following afternoon a tea for the children of Sixth Avenue was held in the school hall. Yesterday Fourth and Fifth Avenue were to have their turn. Social evenings were also held.

Thank you to the children of Edwinstowe May 2020.

Thank you Samuel from King Edwin School – May 2020
