The early May bank holiday in 2020 will move from Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day which takes place on 8th May and to enable people to pay tribute to those who served in one of the most significant events in our country’s history.
The occasion will remember the contribution of British, Commonwealth and Allied armed forces personnel; those who contributed to the war effort and safeguarded the Home Front. As well as marking the Allies’ victory in 1945, the bank holiday will serve as an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have served and continue to serve in the UK Armed Forces and their families.
Frodsham Town Council has accepted Her Majesty’s Pageant Master’s invitation to take part in the celebrations. Cllr Mallie Poulton, Chair of FTC Events Committee says “It is our aim to hold a parade and events for all ages over this special weekend. We would like to ask everyone who wishes to join us in this event – schools, churches, clubs, associations, etc – to attend our first working group meeting on Wednesday 22nd January at 6.30pm in the Queen’s Head”.
Please let Jo O’Donoghue Town Clerk know if you are able to attend.
