Acacia prepared for us all. She made all of the bunting, paper chain and other decorations herself (with the help of the printer lol) and made a VE Day picnic for us to eat in the garden, which included WW2 ration foods such as carrot cookies and cheese whirls.
Alicia flying her flag with her pony at Hurst Farm
Jennifer was learning about the different styles of art as her homeschooling topic, so she did some pop art style pictures. One is of Winston Churchill on the side window and then a spitfire scene on the front along with some symbols. On the front lawn we had a Battle of Britain Bear.
Pam and Jim had Cherry & Keith stop by on their afternoon walkabout.
You could hear the Glenn Miller belting out of the windows!!
Delia, paying her respect, then Cream Tea and Cake shared with neighbours.
