To mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day, Hertfordshire Archives & Local Studies (HALS) has launched a new online exhibition on the county’s community archive website, Herts Memories.
Residents will be able to enjoy taking part in the safety of their own home and pay tribute to the many millions who gave their lives. The event will start at 2.50 pm and end at 3.10 pm. To view the broadcast, just go onto Watford Council’s Facebook Page and the live stream will appear.
The schedule will include music, readings and the Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WW2. At 3:00 pm residents are encouraged to stand up and raise a glass of refreshment of their choice and give the toast: “To those who gave so much, we thank you.”
The service will be led by Elected Mayor Peter Taylor and Chairman Asif Khan to enable people to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (VE Day) virtually.
