17 Aug VJ Day – 75th Anniversary
Mayor Janet Lloyd was honoured to join a small group of representative from the local branch of the Royal British Legion in laying a wreath to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Japan day (VJ day). This momentous event in 1945 marked the end of the second world war. The short ceremony took place in Wellington’s Park on Saturday 8th August at 11 am. A few members of the public joined a couple of other Councillors to safely observe the tribute and pay their own respects.
