Local villages getting ready for socially-distanced VE Day …

By Tracy Barker:

In answer to the request for some good news, I  believe that lots of villages are preparing to have social distancing street or garden parties, on Friday for VE Day celebrations.

We have made a scarecrow to commemorate VE Day and we had lots of fun making her out of old bits from home.


Well done to Tracy and family on a great scarecrow, but also for submitting it to us to share.

    Thanks for posting this; both my parents were sent away during the War. My mum was sent to York with strangers, who became invaluable friends, and my dad to Derbyshire; he was lucky as he had family that took him in. Thank goodness for archives and media to keep our history going.
