Malpas VE75 Commemoration

banner header

The Malpas VE75 Committee regrets that we were unable to stage our 3 days of events to commemorate and celebrate the 75th Anniversary end of World War 2 in Europe over this Bank Holiday.

Following the amount of planning and generous offers of support from a number of individuals and organisations, the committee are determined to restage the events as part of a full village celebration, when we all come through the current crisis, and individuals have the confidence to once again take part in the type of community gathering Malpas is renowned for.

It is pleasing to see that residents are marking the occasion by decorating their homes in red, white and blue, and some are also planning "distancing" neighbour parties.

The nation has not forgotten the occasion and there is a full programme due to be broadcast on national media throughout today.

This includes a National remembrance 2 minutes silence at 11:00am this morning, so we would ask the community to pray silence and remember our own fallen Malpas men who gave their lives during the conflict, and are listed on the Malpas War Memorial in St Oswald's Churchyard.
