VJ Day - virtual events

In preparation of VJ Day, we’re flying a Union flag outside the Civic Centre and the Old Town Hall.

The government has announced revised plans to mark Victory over Japan (VJ) Day on Saturday 15 August. This will commemorate 75 years since the end of the Second World War. Visit https://ve-vjday75.gov.uk/ for ideas, broadcasts, educational resources, bunting and more.

Locally, the Carlisle and Stanwix Branch of the Royal British Legion has recorded a video as a memorial and tribute to those who fought in the Far East.
