Came across the following today in a Parish Pump dated June 2005 -

Hemyock festivities for the 60th anniversary of VE Day - blustery weather - open air service for about 100 - bunting, balloons and Union Flag decorated the Parish Hall where service was held - wreath laid at the War Memoriall - bring and share tea - well loved music  with singing from the 1940's - dancing to the music of Glenn Miller - £150 raised for the RBL  WW2 Anniversary Appeal - medals glistened - eyes misted - but my goodness how those veterans stood straight and proud as the National Anthem was sung
