Friday 8th May 2015 marked the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (VE Day). VE Day officially announced the end of World War Two in Europe.
On 8th May 1945, people celebrated as crowds packed the streets, cheering, singing and dancing. Children joined in the fun, waving flags, dressing up and making party hats. There were fireworks and bonfires, speeches and church services, parades and street parties. Children at Rockmount celebrated VE day by having a picnic out in the playground accompanied with hats, bunting, and music and dancing. Everyone had a fabulous time!
