8/5/20 - The Bears celebrate VE Day! They were very keen to put some bunting up. Barry was a bit silly with the ladder, so went on a yellow card for a while unfortunately. Meredith and Christina held the ladder very sensibly, so were rewarded with the leftover icing when the bears made VE Day fairy cakes!

4/5/20 - VE Day on Friday 8th May!

 

 

VE Day 75

8th May is VE Day and this year is special, as it's the 75th anniversary of VE Day, so there will be lots of celebrations!

VE Day  - Victory in Europe Day - marks the day towards the end of World War 2 when fighting against Nazi Germany in Europe came to an end, following Germany's surrender. At 3pm on 8th May 1945 the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, made a speech on the radio and the celebrations began! Huge crowds gathered outside Buckingham Palace to cheer as King George VI and his family - including Princess Elizabeth, our queen now - came out onto the balcony to greet everybody.
