VE Day 75th Anniversary - CBC Virtual Celebrations

Along with a lot of communities, Colchester Borough Council would have been celebrating the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe next Friday, with a service of remembrance at Colchester's war memorial and other community activities.

Due to the current situation this is not possible, so we have put together a virtual commemoration on the CBC website, which includes personal messages from the Mayor of Colchester and Garrison Commander, prayers from the Bishop of Colchester, links to the Imperial War Museum, Churchill's speeches and resources for the public to hold their own events – such a templates for bunting.

We know that this is not the same as being able to show our respects in person, but hopefully it is a suitable substitute.
