VE DAY 75th ANNIVERSARY MESSAGE FROM Cllr MIKE HUNTER


The following is a message from the Vice-chairman of Middlewich Town Council,
 Cllr Mike Hunter, on the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, 8th May 2020:


'In the midst of a national crisis, we remember the millions who lost their lives in the Second World War and celebrate the 75th anniversary of our victory in Europe over fascism.
We had hoped that this bank holiday would have brought our community together to revive the spirit of 1945, but under current social distancing that is not possible.
So let's get into our front gardens on Friday and do whatever we can to create a street party atmosphere. One day we will meet again for a proper party.
We owe them for the freedoms we enjoy today.
I can say with immense gratitude - to all those who served and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice - your honour, courage and love of freedom will never be forgotten.
Thank you'.
