Twydall Celebrates VE Day 2020
Friday May 8th, is a Bank Holiday to coincide with Victory in Europe Day, or VE Day, which marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. This is a time to remember the heroic sacrifice of those who helped to defeat the evil of Nazism.
As this is a Bank Holiday, we want you to put your school work away and relax. However, should you wish to, you might like to do a little research and learn more about why VE Day is so important.
If you are interested in finding out more please visit these websites:
