V.E. Day Ready Steady Go!

People might be unable to go out shopping for decorations to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe but that hasn’t stopped them using what is at hand and creative imagination to make their own .

Here is just a small collection we have gathered

Claire Kirby of Company Street has been painting pillow cases to make Union Jacks 

Alison Griffiths of Nant y Gleisiad has been using her knitting and crochet skills to occupy her time in lockdown and this bunting is her very successful result.


Here is Lacey Bevan of Melincourt who transformed her lockdown birthday banners with her mother Laura to make some fantastic bunting for their window . What a wonderful way to recycle.


Young Kelsey Mead of John Street has been missing her friends during lockdown but spent some time to create a commemorative window for us to enjoy


Nora and Steve Cooper transformed  their window in John Street into a delightful “flashback” photo gallery showing 50th V.E Day celebrations in John Street and Company Street.
