20200508_110545_Fotor

VE day coffee and cake morning.  After watching the fly by on the tv and the two minute silence residents shared memories and stories together of VE day and the following years after.  Ruby shared a beautiful story of how she was working in a london hospital at the time and at 10pm at night when she finished her shift, she and her friends went into the streets to dance and celebrate.  She was only 22 and she said they partied all night in celebration and she had to be back on shift in the morning but did manage to make a phone call home to her parents.
