2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day. The Government have already announced a national programme of events. Here at Maldon, the Town Council were planning to host a street party outside All Saints church within the shadow of the War Memorial on Bank Holiday Friday 8th May.
Due to the restrictions imposed by COVID 19, this event has had to be cancelled, however Maldon District Council have produced a resources pack for you to use to create your own celebrations https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81432657937
Currently it is still planned that VJ75 (Victory in Japan) will be marked with a special service at Maldon’s Methodist Church at 10.30am on Sunday, 16th August, conducted by a military chaplain attached to NATO. It should all be very fitting and will ensure that Maldon once again marks the victories that brought world conflict to an end.
To share your memories of VE and/or VJ Days, or if you have any questions about the celebrations, please contact Jane Coleman, the Town Clerk at Maldon Town Council, either by email: email@example.com or by telephone: 01621 857373.
