The department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport have created a digital toolkit which includes lots of ways you can still get involved in marking the anniversary. It contains educational resource, a guide for planning an ‘at home’ tea party, recipes, bunting and fun activities – the tool kit is available on www.ve-vjday75.gov.uk/get-involved. The English Heritage and the Royal British Legion are also creating tool kits too.
In Leeds, using resources from these toolkits, the Council have been linking up with Care Homes, schools and nurseries to encourage people to celebrate VE Day wherever they may be.
At David Phillip Estate Agents, we think this is a brilliant idea, encouraging families in Leeds to celebrate this day from the comfort and safety of homes. This initiative gives people something positive to do together as a family whilst fighting a different battle with Covid-19 – thank you Leeds City Council
