LEE VE75 will be the largest community festival in Hampshire, helping us to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE 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.
Please have a look through our website and bear with us, as you see this event develop and grow before your very eyes!
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!
Why not become a sponsor and join us in the VIP area on May 9th 2020 (sponsored by Little Kanga Ltd) where you can socialise, network and promote your business with local dignitaries and other sponsors?
You can also donate via ‘Just Giving’ (button above).
