VE Day 70th Anniversary – 8 May 2015

The Lord-Lieutenant with Roger Jones Chairman of the Royal Tigers’ Association and Sarah Levitt (Head of Arts and Museums for Leicester City Council) were joined by British Legion members and cadets and their families to commemorate the VE Day 70th Anniversary in Town Hall Square.  After the High Sheriff speech, Roger Jones read a moving Tribute and then the Lord-Lieutenant, Jennifer Lady Gretton, lit a beacon – one of many all round the country – to remember with gratitude the end of the War in Europe 70 years ago.
