VJ Day 75th Anniversary
Saturday 15 August marks the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day (Victory over Japan).
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many events and celebrations in Haringey to commemorate VJ Day have been cancelled or rescheduled, to ensure the safety of residents.
Whilst we know this will be disappointing, those unable to attend a remembrance event in person can visit the government’s VJ Day website (external link) for information, advice and activities to commemorate VJ Day at home and online.
For those celebrating at home and with others, we ask that you continue to follow social distancing guidance and wash hands regularly.
A two-minute silence will take place across the UK at 11am on Saturday, to honour the occasion, led by HRH The Prince of Wales, at the National Memorial Arboretum.
Captain Peter Baker, Deputy Lieutenant for Haringey shares a special message:
