Milford adults & kids prepare for VE Day

May Day is traditionally held on a Monday but this year has been put back to Friday 8 May 2020. 

VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe in 1945. This year is the 75th Anniversary.

The people of Milford on Sea are renowned for celebrating anything they can think of, so it is a great shame to miss this special occasion, but this virus is affecting everything. However, this village doesn't give up that easily!

The Milford on Sea Royal British Legion have had to cancel their planned Big Band event in the community centre. 

However, Paul White who lives close to the village green, plans to set up a PA system and at 11am on Friday (8th May) play the last post followed by the reveille after the two minutes silence. 

David Graham, of the Milford on Sea Royal British Legion will be there with the Branch Standard. (Social distancing of course)

Get the Kids Involved

Children can download free VE Day patriotic bunting, party hats and paper chain designs for you all to enjoy on Friday. 

The free artwork has been created by Joanne Wood Design. Please click here and then select the 'Generic' version.

If you would like to use these VE Day graphics, and can afford to, please consider making a donation to the British Legion by clicking here.

Kids Pictures Wanted to Decorate The Smugglers Fence

A message from Suzy & Guy

Sadly we cannot go ahead with our planned celebrations for this day. But we would like to ask the children of the village to help us out.

We are struggling to source enough decorations to put round our fencing so we are asking if any of the children would like to draw us some flags, pictures etc all related to VE Day to hopefully surround our fencing with bunting. 

If you can help out please put your picture in a clear plastic folder or laminate and pop through the letter box by Thursday 7th . Even popping them in a carrier bag would do... come on lets do a virtual celebration from the Smugglers inn.
