To mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday 8 May, the Royal British Legion is calling on individuals and communities across the UK to come together during key moments to pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the entire Second World War generation. As we face some of the most challenging times since the end of the war, now more than ever it is important to come together and unite, just as communities did 75 years ago. 

We ask everyone, wherever you may be, in Wadebridge and our surrounding communities, to join the national moment of reflection and Remembrance at 11am on Friday as we pause in a two-minute silence to honour the service and sacrifice of the Second World War generation, and also take the opportunity to reflect on the devastating impact Covid-19 has had on so many lives across the world.

The circumstances today are different to those of 75 years ago, but the response of our communities remains the same: Be kind. Unite. We can, and we will, pull through this together.
