Due to the arrival of the Coronavirus there was no way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the VE Day in the village. However this wonderful collection of photos from yesteryear features a host of villagers past and present. Most – but not all – were taken to celebrate VE Day back in 1995. At least three of the others are from the time of the war itself. 

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the collection, including Tony Knivett, Sylvia Prestwich, Val Sorrell, Anne King, John Marriott and Mel Chapman. Speaking of Mel Chapman, both his dad and his uncle appear in the Home Guard photo. Can you spot them?
