VE Day 75 - A date for your diary: 8 May 2020

This date represents an important milestone in the history of our communities, our nation, and indeed the world. The 8th May 1945 was the day, 75 years ago, that peace broke out and brought an end to nearly six years of war.

Although we will all still be in lock-down, Sevenoaks Town Council is pleased to support the National Toast to the Heroes of WWII at 3.00pm and a shared moment of celebration.

The Mayor of Sevenoaks, Councillor Nick Busvine OBE said: ‘We can still commemorate the anniversary of VE Day on Friday 8th May and pay tribute to our Second World War generation by having a ‘stay at home party’ and raising a toast on our front doorsteps at 3.00pm’.
