Whilst the events originally planned have had to be postponed due to the Coronavirus, the event is NOT CANCELLED in its entirety….

On Friday 8 May 2020, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day when the guns fell silent at the end of war in Europe, and to share your pride in our country and honour the men and women of WW2 the parish council will be hanging bunting on the railings in the village and would love it if you would join in by putting bunting in your windows and on your fences – indeed anywhere you fancy. You can make your own special VE Day 75 ‘Great British Bunting’ to display in your window at home. (for ideas on how to make your V.E.Day bunting go to www.bbc.co.uk/makeadifference)

And.. Join us at 7pm to toast the 75th anniversary of the end of WW2 in Europe. At 7pm, on the 8th May All Saints Church Bells in Bishop Burton will ring out in Commemoration of the occasion and the Parish Councillors would very much like if you would join them by toasting the occasion on your doorstep. You will be able to hear the bells and hopefully wave to your neighbours! It would be great to celebrate together, all be it from our own homes.

V.E.Day 2020 – I understand that there will be a 2 minute silence at 11am, Churchill’s speech at 3pm, All Saints Church Bishop Burton Bells and toast on your doorstep at 7pm and the Queen is giving a speech at 9pm! More details next week.

V.E.Day 1945 – Yes the actual V.E.Day in 1945. East Riding Libraries are planning to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day (Friday 8th May) with a virtual celebration. They would like to know if the parish held a V.E.Day celebration and, if it did, whether there are any photographs and/or anecdotal memories that people are willing to share. Perhaps you remember the day. East Riding libraries are hoping to compile a gallery of memories that can be shared on the libraries website and social media.

It would be great to be able to build up a picture in respect of the village.
