Coronavirus Update - Event Update
The Event Organiser of LEE VE75 have made the decision to postpone LEE VE75, which has been announced this afternoon.
Following the attached announcement released by the Government last night regarding the VE Day celebrations, which we have been waiting for.
In essence it’s saying the following:
- Veterans’ procession down the Mall will no longer take place.
- Culture Secretary will unveil new plans shortly to ensure the public can give thanks to the Second World War generation
Now with this Government statement, I believe it is the right time to make the decision to postpone LEE VE75 to a future date.
The current situation we face with the coronavirus is changing our landscape of what we do. We were going to wait until the 9th April but it’s clear that the Government are saying to protect the ww2 generation of people, meaning they cannot attend any VE Day event; which means we postpone.
With our contingency plans is a date hopefully in August, which will be subject to the advice from the Government regarding events and social distancing.
Regarding the the 8th May, we will endeavour to get the bunting and flags up together with something we can share with the community.
I’ll keep you informed with the contingency planning; we just have to press the pause button for now. Lee will celebrate.
Keep safe, thank you for your support and understanding
