Victory in Europe (VE) Day Commemoration

This weekend St John the Baptist Piddington, along with many other churches throughout the country, and in other countries in Europe, will be marking the 70th anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day).

As part of this observance, churches will be ringing their bells at 11 a.m. on Saturday. You are most welcome to come and visit the church and see the bell ringers and hear the bells close up, or sit in the church yard, weather permitting!

If you are out walking in the fields or your town and hear a particularly vigorous bout of bell ringing on Saturday morning, you might like to take a moment to stop and remember the events of WWII and all those who lost their lives during the war, as well as give thanks for the end of hostilities.
