Thanks have been given to the scores of people who turned out to mark the 70th anniversary of VE Day .
Chairman of the Mablethorpe and District Royal British Legion, Jim McKenna said; “Mablethorpe and District Branch of the Royal British Legion would like to thank all those who joined us at Dreams Bar last Saturday afternoon for a picnic to meet the local British Legion and commemorate VE Day with us.
“We would particularly like to thank Sue and all the Staff at Dreams for all that hard work to make it such a successful day.
“We would also like to thank the stall holders for their generous donation to the Poppy Appeal and the cadets and the drums of the 1228 Mablethorpe air cadets who were quite literary drumming up support on the very windy seafront.”
Linda’s Pavilion Cafe in Queen’s Park, Mablethorpe (pictured top right) held a fun day of events which was well attended and raised a massive £500 for Help for Heroes. And Mablethorpe had its very first rely boat race.
Plus the Trusthorpe Clangers bell ringing group (pictured bottom right) joined in with the national bell ringing for VE Day as churches and Cathedrals throughout the UK rang their bells in a sign of victory, signifying the end to the years they had hung in silence during the Second World War. Mablethorpe Conservative Club held their own VE Day barbecue.
