May 8th VE (Victory for Europe) day remembrance

This Friday, May 8th,  marks the 75th anniversary of VE day when World War II finished in Europe. We are asked to mark a 2 minute silence at 11am, in whatever way we chose, to reflect on the past sacrifices of those who battled both at war and on the home front to win freedom. And to reflect on how we can support todays frontline, especially those in the NHS and in hospital, to meet an equally tough but very different challenge.

There is a more detailed note from our friends at the British Legion of the various livestreams they are showing  here  The BBC website also has a full programme of activities.

We thank all those both past and present for their service, both past and present.
