Friday 8th May - VE Day - Stay At Home Street Party

The Queen praised the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic as she remembered Britain’s sacrifices during the Second World War on the 75th anniversary of VE day, paying tribute to the generations of both 1945 and 2020.

“When I look at our country today, and see what we are willing to do to protect and support one another, I say with pride that we are still a nation those brave soldiers, sailors and airmen would recognise and admire,” she said. “Never give up, never despair – that was the message of VE Day".
