Today 8th May 2020 marks 75 years to the day in which Allied forces formally announced the surrender of Nazi Germany. This monumentous day now known as “Victory in Europe Day,” finally bought the end of WWII (World War Two) in Europe!
Today as a nation we are in lockdown due to COVID-19 and understandably all major public events have been cancelled. I hope that we will all come together as a strong and empowered Neurodivergent/ SEND community to commemorate and celebrate Victory in Europe Day a different way! Did you know that it is ‘a thing’ this year to have your V E Day celebration events on your own front garden (applying social distancing rules and staying a safe distance away from all of your neighbours)?
We may have to obey social distancing rules and cannot therefore have whole street parties with neighbours, friends and families sat side by side but on this special 75th V E Day, we can have a garden party with the members of our own households!
Fire up the Alexa everyone, crank up the volume on ‘Vera Lynn’, ‘Doris Day’ and other World War classics and get in the moment! Why don’t you put up some bunting to add the perfect and special touch to your V E Day garden party?
To help you with this we have created some free downloadable, printable bunting A4 PDFs for you and your families to use at home and we have even included some black and white ones that you can your family can colour in together!
Hold your families close today everyone and remember to participate in the two minutes silence as 11am this morning!
Take care, stay safe and stay well! Lots of love from the Operation Diversity Team xx
Share on social media!
It would be absolutely amazing if you would please take a picture once your decorative bunting is hanging up proudly in your home or garden and post it on social media to show us! You can tag our FACEBOOK PAGE using: @operationdiversity and the Hashtags #OperationDiversity #VEDay75
