VE Day Celebrations

Your town needs you!

Do you have a family story from the Second World War? Do you have a family member that can speak about their experiences during the 2nd World War? Are you a school that will be researching this era with their pupils? If so, we need you!

On Friday 8th May 2020 all the charities that run the SWF Village Hall, playing field and social club bar will be commerating VE Day. We want this to be a truly local event, going back in time to show how the British people carried on through the most telling of times. Personal stories, memorabilia and anything in fact that will show what took place and how this great country carried on!

We want to run a traditional day, with sack races, tug of war, egg and spoon, baking competitions, craft. So, if you have a stall that would be appropriate, that would be great!

While this day is predominantly for VE Day, we would also like to fully acknowledge VJ Day too, so again, if you, your family or friends have a story to tell, we would like to display this for everyone to see. Photos would be great, but copies only please, these are too precious to lose.

Come on South Woodham Ferrers, let’s pull together and make this a day of remembrance and to remember.

If you would like to join in, please contact Joan on 01621 826735 or email
