Marking VE75 (updated)

Despite the cancellation of the local commemorative events that were planned, many joined in from home.

Jan Swindale, our Llandrindod Town Crier, writes:

I was able to participate in the 11am 2 minutes silence and then at 3pm performed the Toast to the Heroes and Tribute to the Millions on my balcony with applause from Jenny next door on her balcony!  At 6.55pm I performed my Cry for Peace, hopefully with hundreds of other Town Criers UK and Worldwide.  I was touched by the attendance of the Mayor and his consort in my garden to support me, at the appropriate distances of course.  It was very kind of them as it is a bit lonely down Park Lane!

Everyone take care, keep safe and well, with best wishes from Jan Swindale, Town Crier AHGTC.


Other members marked the day in their own fashion.  Photos from Meg Lewis in Llanyre.
