VE Day – 8 May 2021

VE Day 2021

VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) is the day on which the Second World War was brought to a close in Europe with the Allied Forces’ formal announcement of Germany’s surrender.

Due to the pandemic, as with the 75th Anniversary of VE Day in 2020, public commemorations will not be able to take place. 

Tickton & Routh Parish Council will place a wreath and the two silent silhouettes will stand at the War Memorial on behalf of the community.  The streetlights along Main Street, Tickton and the noticeboards at Hull Bridge, Routh and Weel will be decorated with red, white and blue ribbons.
