Lancashire-based company Clayton Park Bakery is offering a tray of pies and cakes to the first 10 VE day veterans who make themselves known to the organisation to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day.
Clayton Park Bakery is calling anyone who was there on the 8th of May 1945, to come forward. Family, friends, or the individuals themselves can enter by sending an image, either current day or ideally in uniform to Facebook, Twitter, or by email to Clayton Park Bakery.
The VE day celebration this year was due to be a three-day national spectacular, with the May Day Bank Holiday being brought forward for only the second time in history.
Pubs had been granted an extension to their opening hours. In London there was a procession planned along The Mall and St. James's Park was to be re-branded "Victory Park". Winston Churchill's famous speech on the ending of the war was also planned to be broadcast in public spaces around the country. Now, because of coronavirus, none of these events will take place in their originally intended form
