VE Day celebrations

Friday 8 May 2015 is the anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day), marking 70 years since the end of the second world war in Europe.

The 70th anniversary of VE Day will see beacons lit in cities throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man in commemoration of the peace that these and others helped to realise.

At the going down of the sun on the 8 May the first beacon will be lit (at a location to be announced) followed by a chain of over 100 beacons across the UK. The Beacon on Hunston Playing Field will be part of this event and will be lit with hundreds of others at 9.30pm on Friday 8th May 2015. Residents of Hunston, their friends and families are warmly invited to join in these celebrations.
