Message from the Lord Mayor of Chester and Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council:
The Right Worshipful
The Lord Mayor of the City of Chester
Councillor Mark Williams
Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council Councillor Bob Rudd
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, sadly the planned civic and military public commemoration events to mark 75 years since the Second World War ended have been cancelled.
However, the Lord Mayor of Chester, The Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council and Chester Cathedral have come together to produce a Virtual Civic Service to commemorate 75 years since the end of World War 2. Military Personnel, local dignitaries, Chester Cathedral clergy and school children have all contributed to the short service which has been recorded from their personal locations, including on board HMS Albion.
Whatever you have planned on Friday, please take time in your day to sit back and enjoy the virtual civic VE day service.
