An Uttlesford district councillor has announced his plans for Victory in Europe Day (VE Day) and has called for residents of Great Dunmow and surrounding villages to come together and mark the day.
Speaking to the Broadcast, R4U Councillor Arthur Coote said he and his wife Elaine will be laying a wreath on Friday at 3pm, to mark 75 years from VE Day.
He is encouraging residents to commemorate the fallen and celebrate with a cup of tea on the day.
“It would be nice if people stayed in their gardens at three o’ clock as we lay the wreath and hold a minute of silence, and then have biscuits and tea,” Cllr Coote said.
