75th Anniversary of VE Day weekend, 8th – 10th May 2020.

We might have been under ‘lockdown’ over the weekend for the Coronavirus Pandemic, but it didn’t stop the residents of Church Minshull from displaying a bit of wartime spirit. At 3pm on the 8th the bells rang out as neighbours gathered in their own gardens or on driveways, to have tea as requested by the Royal British Legion. The weather was hot and sunny, a complete contrast to a chilly 10th, when the bells sounded again, with sirens and wartime songs broadcast across the village.
