THANK you to all those who worked so hard to make the 70th anniversary ofVE Day so memorable at the Parish Hall on Friday, May 8.
The exhibitions were in formative and very well displayed.
Lunch was delicious and — thankfully — it was not rationed.
Returning in the evening for the concert, featuring the Barney Brass Band and Friends, we enjoyed a memorable night filled with nostalgia and lots of singing and flag waving by the packed audience.
Despite the torrential rain, the evening culminated with the lighting of the Beacon — the only one in Durham – outside St Mary’s Church. Our thoughts are very much with all those who suffered and gave so much for our freedom.
J & S H,
