GLORIOUS sunshine ensured residents across Warrington were “In the Mood” to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day despite the coronavirus lockdown.
Street parties, garden parties and BBQs were in full swing across the whole town with red, white and blue bunting bedecking many homes and streets.
Even bagpipes could be heard on the streets of Orford as parties got into full swing.
While many residents took to the streets to celebrate, social distancing rules were observed as celebrations and parties took place across the whole town throughout the day, after observing two minutes silence at 11am to remember all those who lost their lives.
Cinnamon Brow CE primary school put together a special video (see above) to celebrate VE Day with Staff as well as some of their families sharing how they were all celebrating VE Day.
