Bishopsteignton Heritage received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant in January 2020 for the creation of a project to bring the local community together by celebrating the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe. Many of the events we planned early in 2020 could not be carried out due to Coronavirus Lockdown measures.
With only one more day to go until the VE-Day 75th Anniversary, today we would like to remind you how you can celebrate within your own home and garden.
Many people lost their lives fighting in WWII, some came back alive, and others stayed and did their bit at home. Today we would like to remind you of the men and women who were the heroes.
Local dances were extremely important to the occupants of towns and villages throughout Britain during WWII. It was a place to meet your friends and have fun.
Though most women were left at home when WWII started, as their men went off to fight, a large number enlisted for the services or did vital war work.
Only 5 days to go until VE-Day. Today we want to tell you about Evacuees, several of whom landed in Bishopsteignton during WWII.
How much do YOU know about the music that was around in WWII?
