This year the Early May Bank Holiday has been moved to tomorrow Friday, May 8 to coincide with Victory in Europe Day, or VE Day, which marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe.
It will be the first day of a long weekend featuring numerous commemorative events across the country.
The team at Pierce hope you all manage to have a relaxing break over the weekend, whilst observing the usual social distancing guidelines of course.
We would also like to take this opportunity to showcase the work of our client John Everiss Design, a Chorley based multi RHS gold medal winning designer who created the ‘D-Day 75 Garden’ in June 2019 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the 1944 D-Day Landings.
The ‘D-Day 75 Garden’ was exhibited at the Royal Hospital Chelsea during the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, to celebrate the lives of our Normandy veterans; 75 of whom were invited to take part across the week and share their incredible stories with the Chelsea pensioners and the public. It was then gifted by the veterans to the town of Arromanches, Normandy in a ceremony on 6th June 2019.
