V E Day

May 8th marks the anniversary Victory in Europe Day, or V E Day. As Winston Churchill announced the end of the war in London, crowds filled the streets from Trafalgar Square up to Buckingham Palace. Princess Margaret and her sister Elizabeth, the future Queen Elizabeth II, were among the crowd taking part in the celebrations.

Today is the 8th of May, the 75th anniversary. We are very pleased that a film has been produced to mark the anniversary and that the film includes items from the Clitheroe Youth Forum website. Also interviews of some of the veterans that were involved in our earlier project. Credit is  given to Clive and Barbara Greenwood.
