Ceremony in Victoria Square as St Helens commemorates VE Day

0

Residents are invited to attend a short ceremony at the Victoria Square Cenotaph on Friday 8 May, as St Helens commemorates VE Day.

Reverend Harry Wood of Parish Church will say a few words, before a 2 minutes’ silence commences at 3pm, the exact time – 70 years ago – that Winston Churchill broadcast his historic speech formally announcing the end of World War Two.

The ceremony will conclude with two songs from the Holy Cross School Choir, followed by a closing prayer from Reverend Wood.
