VE & VJ Day. Our ancestors and veterans, will be honoured for sacrificing their freedom; to give us ours.
It is imperative that we share their stories to create a living legacy, both today and for future generations.
This 1940’s themed event is being organised by a team of willing local volunteers; and all funding raised, will be used by Lee Residents Association, to show up to 2,000 attendees a ‘living history’ of the times, against the coastal backdrop of Lee On The Solent as the outdoor venue.
If you would like to help us with the event, either through taking up a paid stall; providing entertainment or volunteering on the day; please contact us. We need you!
