The Park Home Life Guide to VE Day Celebrations May 8th

Home - VE Day 75

With only a week to go until bank holiday Friday, we know that street parties that were planned are now not able to happen, although we didn’t want you to miss out. Over the coming days beginning tomorrow and each day until Friday, we are producing a guide to creating your own garden party / house party for you and yours that you live with, to ensure that the day is celebrated and our veterans are remembered.


From bunting making, the play list, the hair do and even the food, the guide will ensure that you have everything ready for this prestigious event, the only thing we are unable to help with is the weather, so if there is rain take the celebrations inside to ensure that you don’t miss out


Our checklist for the day to begin your preparation is below and each day we will “put the bones on the meat” and give you guidance on how to make the day as special as you can.


So here goes – A countdown to your very own street party
