VE Day Celebrations In Heathfield
VE Day, which stands for Victory in Europe Day, was the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe. The bank holiday on Friday May 8 will be the beginning of a three-day weekend of commemorative events in the UK to mark the important date. It is only the second time the early May bank holiday has been moved in history. The first time the date was changed was in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of VE Day.
On Saturday 9th May there will be a big street party in Station Road and Station Approach. The road will be closed. There will be live music, food and drink stalls, a vintage car show and a history exhibition in Union Church from 1pm until 5pm.
Please come along and join in the fun !!
