VE Day 75 + 1

VE (Victory in Europe) Day on 8 May 2021 marks 76 years since the end of the war in Europe. We do not forget that sacrifices and conflict continued until August 1945.

The towns of Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch played important roles in the war effort – at sea, in the air, and on land. Thousands of residents experienced war first hand in the military, in factories, in hospitals, and at home.

Whilst physical events to commemorate this special day may be cancelled due to Coronavirus, you can still be involved. Follow the links below for more information.
