  1. Council plans virtual VE day celebrations

    Oldham Council is planning to celebrate the 75th VE Day anniversary through social media due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

    Soldiers celebrating VE day

    The anniversary of VE day, which commemorates the surrender of the German armed forces in World War Two, is on Friday, which will also be a bank holiday.

    The council is planning a poetry stream and a singalong organised by its library staff.

    Council leader Sean Fielding said:

    Quote Message: VE Day was a victory over the far-right in Europe that was only achieved with huge sacrifice. Even in these unusual circumstances it is therefore important to mark the 75th anniversary to both remember this sacrifice and reflect on what it was that our ancestors were fighting against.
    Quote Message: I’m sure Oldham residents will join me in commemorating the anniversary with the same commitment as we do for Remembrance Sunday. However, whilst we are still in lockdown, our celebrations will have to take place at home.
