VE75 Day – A Film by Tony Perkins

Tony takes us back to VE Day itself, a day very few of us will be old enough to remember, and the years immediately afterwards.


An inaugural meeting took place on Tuesday 14th October 2008 and was attended by 80 residents. Votes were cast for Chair, Vice Chairs, Secretary, Treasurer and other officials. Several short talks outlined future activities and were enthusiastically received. A collection of maps and other historical documents were perused during the tea break. During the meeting, several residents shared some of their interesting personal research into the village. At the conclusion of the meeting, it was announced that there were already more than 60 members signed up.


Membership is open to all. Annual subscription is £6 per person (£10 per couple). An entrance fee of £1 will be charged at meetings to cover costs (£3 for guests).
