Blewbury Local History Group

February 27, 2020

When does history become history?

I ask that because this year we shall be celebrating VE Day, 1945, 8th May, and that’s history to schoolchildren today, but a vivid memory to many of us born before the War. What do you remember about that day? If we get enough people recalling events for that day then we shall have an exhibition and a chance to exchange stories about it. I remember everyone sitting at a long table in our street and having ham sandwiches, and jelly that families had saved their coupons for. Any photos, stories about VE-Day either in Blewbury or elsewhere will be welcomed. Talk to any member of the History Group.

Next meeting is Tuesday, March 10th at 8pm in the History Room, Parsonage Lane. Contacts: Mark at or Audrey 850427 or
