As social distancing requirements have been extended as part of the national response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Hailsham residents are being asked to mark VE Day at home.
Numerous commemorations throughout the country had been planned for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe, with the early May Bank Holiday being moved to VE Day on Friday 8th May.
Despite the cancellation of the Hailsham Live VE Day event originally scheduled for Friday 8th May, a newly adapted version of the event will take place, with a series of specially made films being broadcast online throughout the day.
“The series of live films produced by Hailsham News are keenly anticipated by us all and I would encourage everyone to take the time and join in these commemoration events on 8th May.”
The films will be broadcast via https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-Xt-QJ-AeBo51_n3fbmGFA and then shared on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/HailshamNewsTalk/
