DECORATE YOUR HOUSE TO MARK THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF VE DAY

With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, the BBC wanted to help people across Britain to mark the occasion and express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of World War Two.

With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, the BBC wanted to help people across Britain to mark the occasion and express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of World War Two.

From Monday 27th April, every BBC Local Radio station will be asking people to get creative and make their own special ‘Great British Bunting’ to hang in their windows. Bunting can be decorated with pictures of soldiers who fought on the frontline or those who worked on the Homefront; it could be your grandad in the Navy or your great grandmother who worked for the RAF. Or you could draw a poppy to commemorate the fallen, a dove to celebrate lasting peace or a rainbow to symbolise hope.

All the guidance and inspiration you need to make your bunting from whatever you have at home can be found on BBCs Website

Hang your bunting with pride over the weekend of Friday 8 May – Sunday 10 May and make sure you share your pictures with your local BBC Local Radio station and with us on social media using the hashtags #GreatBritishBunting, #VEDay75 and #VCCVEDay.

We have created some templates for you and they can be found below.
