Brightwell celebrates VE Day 2020 in style

Remembering family

From remembering those that were there to the very young, The village celebrates, at a safe distance, with food and wine (from spam sandwiches to fizz).

After weeks of isolation the community came together to celebrate 75 years since the end of the conflict.

Church Lane had a table outside almost every house, The Street celebrated with bunting and painted stones as well as booze.

Outlying villagers came to see all the fun and the children gathered goose grass (some things never change!)

At dusk candles were lit at doorsteps all around and “We’ll meet again” sung at 9pm to round off a magical day.
