hosted by La Petite Bouchee
Come and join in the 70th anniversary celebrations of VE DAY here at La Petite Bouchee . On May 8th 1945 Winston Churchill the delivered the news which was to change the face of history as we know it. There was dancing in the streets and the whole world cheered.
Churchill delivered one of his most notable speeches
"Hostilities will end officially at one minute after midnight to-night (Tuesday, May 8), but in the interests of saving lives the "Cease fire" began yesterday to be sounded all along the front, and our dear Channel Islands are also to be freed to-day........
We may allow ourselves a brief period of rejoicing; but let us not forget for a moment the toil and efforts that lie ahead. Japan, with all her treachery and greed, remains unsubdued. The injury she has inflicted on Great Britain, the United States, and other countries, and her detestable cruelties, call for justice and retribution. We must now devote all our strength and resources to the completion of our task, both at home and abroad. Advance, Britannia! Long live the cause of freedom! God save the King! "
Proceedings will be getting underway at 7pm. You'll be welcomed with our special VE Day Cocktail and some little canapes followed by our
