Throwleigh Parish

 I just wanted to give you some information on VE Day.

Below are a few sites with useful and interesting resources:

English Heritage has some great recipes and things to do to mark the occasion in your own home: https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/siteassets/home/visit/ve-day-75/eh-ve-day-at-home-pack.pdf

HM Government has a dedicated page full with ideas, a traditional flapjack recipe and stories from those that fought. https://ve-vjday75.gov.uk/

Ancestry has made all it's UK historical records FREE from 4th - 10th May, so you can discover personal stories and the role your family played in the Second World War.  https://www.ancestry.co.uk/cs/veday75?o_iid=108060&o_lid=108060&o_sch=Web+Property

The Royal British Legion has a planned programme throughout the day. More information here:
