VE Day 75th Aniversary

By Alfie_P
This lovely lady is my next door neighbour, she was 12years old on VE day and lived in south London. We had a street party to celebrate, everybody had set up in their front gardens. She wouldn't come out because she is not to steady on her feet. So we played her a song from that period ' Run Rabbit Run' by Flanagan and Allen, she sang the whole song and didn't miss a beat or forget any of the words and we accompanied her about 12 of her nearest neighbours and it made her day. I took this image just after the song.
And yes we all observed social distancing. Smile
