Rutland plans street parties to mark 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday
Friday, May 8, marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day, marking the end of the Second World War in Europe.
To commemorate this hugely significant date, a programme of events and activities have been planned, allowing people to celebrate and pay their respects to veterans while still observing social distancing.
Local organisers have created a series of virtual VE Day celebrations, which will take place alongside a nationwide Stay at Home Street Party, and Rutland County Council is encouraging as many people as possible to get involved.
