VE Day Sing Along 1995 Style.


Photo: Kristine Roberts.VE Day + 50 was celebrated at Middle Weald farm on 8th May 1995. Lower Weald won the football match by 3-2 against a combined Middle and Upper Weald team. There was a display of memorabilia, quizzes, and a fish and chip supper followed by a sing along of 1940's hits led by the "Headscarf" trio.

Immediately following the lighting of the first commemorative fire beacon in Hyde Park by the Queen, a bonfire was lit in Upper Weald. As the flames became visible similar fires were lit in Middle and Lower Weald, symbolically linking the three hamlets of the village whilst the two minute silence was observed.
