VE day - Friday 8 May

Friday 8 May is the 75th anniversary of VE day. It is a bank holiday (remember those!). Shielding, isolating and social distancing still applies but the occasion can be marked from home - see below.

Norris's is open as normal (8.30 to 6pm daily except key workers from 7.30am Mon-Sat)

Niton Parmacy is open 9am - 12noon

Her Majesty The Queen will send a message to the nation at 9pm on BBC One, the exact moment her father, King George VI, gave a radio address in 1945. 

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales will read an extract from King George VI’s diary from 8 May 1945 which describes the day including The Royal Family’s iconic Buckingham Palace balcony appearances.

The Royal British Legion has details of events to mark the anniversary.
