VE Day celebrations

How this special day was commemorated across our homes and housing schemes

For those who were alive at the time, VE Day has special significance. Over the weekend, the day was marked by our homes and housing schemes in a host of ways, from observing the two-minute silence, to singing wartime songs and enjoying afternoon tea with a VE Day twist. Thank you to all our staff who worked so hard to make it such a special occasion. Below are just some of the highlights:

VE Day devotions at Evington Home, Leicester

Singing wartime tunes and 1940s Sunday School songs at Royd Court, Mirfield

Quiz time at Framland, Wantage

Scrumptious cake at Finborough Court, Great Finborough...

... Bethany Christian Home, Plymouth...

...Luff House, Walton-on-the-Naze...

... and Emmaus House, Harrogate. Yum!
