VE Day 75

Alert message sent 07/05/2020 15:31:00

Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police

In 1945, after six long years, people came together to celebrate the end of fighting in Europe.

Seventy-five years on we can’t hold street parties with family or friends to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, those who returned home, and all who fought on the Home Front. But we can give thanks to all those who played their part in bringing about peace, by staying at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

We have technology and capabilities to keep in touch with each other that people would only have dreamed of in 1945. Celebrate at home or stay local and do not travel to visit family and friends or mix households.

Mark this poignant VE Day 75 at home and be innovative by holding an online party; make some home-made bunting; break out your finest bone china for tea; and listen to a little Glenn Miller to get in the mood.

It would be the greatest tribute to the Second World War generation and the veterans alive today for us to honour this moment by keeping them and those you care about safe by staying at home.

Stay Home, Save Lives.
