VE75 reflections in the villages 8 May
- There will be a national two minutes’ silence at 11am, after which Robert Shuler will conduct a short service at the war memorial in St Mary’s churchyard. Listen out and you will hear the Last Post and Reveille.
- Watch BBC One at 2.45pm – a broadcast of Sir Winston Churchill’s famous victory speech announcing the end of the war in Europe.
- Later on, if you go outside you should hear:
- A bagpipe lament at 7pm
- The bells of St Mary’s ring out at 8pm
Her Majesty The Queen will address the nation on television at 9pm
Well done to everybody for putting out flags, bunting and posters! The valley’s display has been captured in some excellent photos that you can see on the Upper Deverills Facebook page.
