VE DAY 75: Preparations Underway In Whitby To Mark Event

Published by Karen Liu at 12:05pm 7th May 2020.

Whitby is preparing to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day tomorrow.

Residents have created a page to mark the event virtually too.

It has asked people to send any poems, recordings, or videos to them to share over the bank holiday weekend.

Councillor Linda Wild, Mayor of Whitby, said:

"People are making bunting and colouring it in. There's a lot around already but I think there's going to be a lot more.

People are going to be coming out of their houses and safely into their gardens.

Although it's a real shame that we can't really get out there and do VE 75 Day proud, we will be doing that, you know everybody in their own way.

It will just be fantastic in Whitby to see it full of red, white and blue and it will be, because people are putting up flags and bunting. They're already in windows and outside in gardens.

Everybody's going to safely celebrating at home and online.

I mean once again, it's going to be fabulous seeing the community of Whitby coming together."

Cllr Wild has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Paddy in the Morning:
