You can celebrate VE Day while following social distancing guidelines, by holding your own event at home. If you haven’t got a front garden, use your back garden, porch or open the window.
Hopefully you will see the spitfire flypast which is due to go over Queen Victoria Hospital at about 1.02pm. You can then join in the toast to the Nation’s Heroes at 3 pm.
