Haughton's 75th VE Day Celebrations
Back in December, I did a list of forthcoming Bell Ringing events and the furthest event in the future was VE day ringing. Although no specific ringing had been organised the date had been firmly entered into our diaries. We would have probably rung a quarter peal as we often do to mark such an occasion or maybe just some general ringing or maybe both. Little did we know and certainly no one could have imagined we would all be in 'Lockdown' and any celebration would need to be done with social distancing in mind (had anyone ever hear of social distancing before?).
So with no Bell Ringing to report on let's share our own celebrations. If have any pictures or video's that you would like me to put on the site please send them to:
