Ivybridge Celebrates Peace in Europe

On the 8th May 1945, victory was declared in Europe following the destruction caused by the second world war. Although this was not the end of the war around the world, which came later following the events in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, peace in Europe was celebrated and the 75th anniversary of peace across the continent is to be marked in 2020 with a national holiday.

Ivybridge is planning some events in the town and to engage the community in this anniversary. It is a time when we can remember the lives that were lost during the war in Europe as well as celebrating the 75 years of peace that have followed.

There will be a number of events taking place in the town on 8th May:

The Nation’s Toast – 3pm

In each of the pubs in the town, people will be invited to raise a toast to the Heroes of WW2

Piper at the war memorial – 3pm

We will have a piper at the war memorial to play the last post and Battles O’er in memory of the fallen. We are also planning a small parade as part of this commemoration

Alongside these events that will link in with similar events across the nation (https://www.veday75.org/), we would like to hold street / park parties in the town. We are looking for volunteers to help arrange these events in local street on in the town’s central parks.

These could be as simple as all the neighbours bringing along a picnic table and a plate of food, or we could get more ambitious if the community would support it. Please get in touch with the Ivybridge Town Council if you would like any help or advice on street parties / road closures etc, or if you would like to volunteer to support with a larger community event. Email townclerk@ivybridge.gov.uk, phone 01752 893815, or drop into the town hall if you would like to be involved.

The Watermark will be showing ‘VE Day 75 With The Daily Mail’, presented by SSAFA, the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity, on Friday 8 May. It will be broadcast to cinemas nationwide live from a sold-out Royal Albert Hall. Featuring the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra plus special guests, audiences will enjoy stirring and emotional music from some of Britain’s greatest composers - from Elgar’s Nimrod to Walton’s Spitfire Prelude & Fugue, Holst’s Planet Suite to Ron Goodwin’s Battle Of Britain Theme and many more. There will also be on stage appearances by Second World War Veterans. This event is in support of SSAFA. Tickets available online at tickets.ivybridgewatermark.co.uk, on 01752 892220 or in person from the box office.
