VE Day Update

VE Day updates for you.

There will be a 2 minute silence at 11 am in the morning. Hamish Sanger Davies will then perform the Last Post on his trumpet on the Chapel steps.

The VE Day Stay at Home Street Party begins at 2:30pm.

(The Star has a collection point for afternoon & cream teas outside the pub.)

The toast will be at 3pm and be accompanied by the church bells, special dispensation has been granted!

At approx 3:15pm there will be a rendition of ‘We’ll Meet Again’ sung by Mr David Ward, whom many of you will know as erstwhile village compére, former Ashton Players performer and more! This will start at 3:15pm and be based outside the two ‘Walnut’ houses, close to Playing Field Lane but on the other side of the road. We are hoping some of you may be able to hear him despite not being close by! Hope you will join in wherever you are, instrumentalists welcome and the key is D. Here are the lyrics for you to print out if you don’t know them.

Hope you have the prosecco chilling and the afternoon teas ready!
