VE Day Celebrations


While we can't have the street parties and activities many had planned to mark VE Day, there are still lots of ways to celebrate that won't break social distancing rules.

The early May bank holiday has been moved to Friday 8th May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day this year.

A national social media campaign has called for communities across the country to decorate their homes in red, white and blue to mark VE Day with stay at home 'street parties'. The two Kibworth parish councils are therefore encouraging residents to take part in your streets.

BBC Local Radio have templates for bunting that can be printed out and stuck in windows or posters for your little ones to colour in.

Families in the same household are also being called on to have picnics or buffets to mark the occasion, which can either be held in gardens or indoors.

Come on Kibworth, lets have a party on Friday 8th May - 1pm to 3pm - but please remember to maintain social distancing!
