Bampton Branch

VE Day 70th Anniversary

For the 70th anniversary of VE Day our branch decided that we should try and re-create the parties which wold of happened at the time.

We managed to persuade a local landlord (Who happens to be a legion member) To give us the use of his pub, and set about decorating it for a party.

We put the word out to the local community that there would be an opportunity to dress up and have a sing along. This weas mainly due to the fact we had hi-jacked the local church organist to come and play the piano in the pub.

So the scene was set and we all had a jolly good time. Dancing, drinking and singing in to the small hours. We also managed to raise a substantial amount of money for both the Branch and the Poppy Appeal.
