We attend the 70th VE anniversary commemoration in our village
VE day is a public holiday in France. Jill and I attended the 70th anniversary commemoration held in the village at 10:30 this morning. Thanks were given to, and a minute’s silence held for, the members of the French and Allied Forces who lost their lives during the conflict.
Afterwards we retired to the village hall for an apéritif. We were amazed by the number of people asking us about yesterday’s election in the UK.
