Friday 8th May 2020, has been designated by the Government as a bank holiday to enable as many towns, parishes, community and voluntary organisations to join in the VE Day 75 celebrations.  We are keen to hear from groups/organisations, Parish Councils and schools that are looking to celebrate VE Day.  The district council is making funding available to support celebratory initiatives which could include a tea party, an exhibition, a talk, a social event for young and old, a dance with a VE Day 75 celebratory theme/connection.  Groups can apply for a one off grant of £250 with no match funding required.
