AMELIA TREATS HER GRANDFATHER TO A SPECIAL VE DAY ANNIVERSARY
A grandfather, who was evacuated from London to East Layton, near Richmond, when he was only five years old, was treated to a wonderful surprise on VE Day. Amelia, in Year 11, put together a very special afternoon tea for her grandparents to mark VE Day with her family. She made an impressive selection of delicious cakes, buns and biscuits, beautifully decorated in red, white and blue.
Social distancing with neighbours, Amelia and her family members joined in a party in her street. VE Day is an important anniversary for Amelia’s family and she has a number of relatives who share memories of living through the war years. Amelia also has family members who fought in World War One.
