Here is the link to the 75 VE Day website where all the information relating to the UK celebrations is on, also on this page is a link to the website that supplies all banners/bunting etc.

Ayton did the village proud with an outstanding performance on their Facebook page, with the reading of Winston Churchills speech and the singing and ringing of the bell. Go to the Facebook page above and have a look if you haven't already. 


Dear Participants,


I am afraid that the terrible Coronavirus emergency and consequent Government guidance means that we must advise participants to cancel or postpone the majority of the VE Day 75 community celebrations due to take place on the bank holiday weekend of 8th - 10th May. It is right and proper that people should be kept safe and healthy.

My sincere thanks to everyone who registered their events and were looking forward to celebrating VE Day 75. I know how disappointed you will be that these cannot now go ahead as planned. However, we are still encouraging solo pipers and town criers to continue to mark the occasion from a safe and suitable location.

I am hoping that all the events you have carefully planned can be moved to the weekend of 15th - 16th August when we will be able to celebrate VE Day and VJ Day, both momentous points in our history. I am in ongoing communication with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport regarding this and hope to be able to give you more news in the coming days.

With my very best wishes,
