Throwleigh Parish

 I just wanted to give you some information on VE Day.

Below are a few sites with useful and interesting resources:

English Heritage has some great recipes and things to do to mark the occasion in your own home:

HM Government has a dedicated page full with ideas, a traditional flapjack recipe and stories from those that fought.

Ancestry has made all it's UK historical records FREE from 4th - 10th May, so you can discover personal stories and the role your family played in the Second World War.

The Royal British Legion has a planned programme throughout the day. More information here:

Please do pass this onto anyone who may be interested in this information.  

Kind regards


Mrs Kate Graddock
