Celebrate VE Day with special activity packs

GreenSquare is helping customers and staff to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day in lockdown with special activity packs. 

The anniversary of Victory in Europe Day on Friday 8 May was set to be a significant occasion, with the May bank holiday moved, and largescale events planned to commemorate the landmark.

Thanks to Citizen Housing, who has worked with the Royal British Legion and National Memorial Arboretum to create the special packs, we’re able to help people to mark the anniversary from their home by reading about VE Day and taking part in activities.

There are activity packs available for children and adults and they include puzzles, recipes, extracts from Churchill speeches, lyrics to war songs and much more.

Ross Kuklinski, Housing & Support Services Assistant Director at GreenSquare, said: “We’re delighted to be able to share these activity packs with customers, to give everyone the chance to mark this hugely significant anniversary.

“Out of lockdown this would have been a very special anniversary and it’s important that this isn’t lost.

"We hope the packs help individuals and families engage with, and celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day in a really positive way.”

Packs are available for 7-11-year-olds, 11-16-year-olds and 16+. Download them from here
