Rudby Parish Council

Rudby Parish Commemorative Event for VE Day 75th Anniversary

Instead of holding the usual Village Event in early summer, the Parish Council propose that the community join the country-wide VE Day 75th Anniversary celebrations over the weekend of 8 – 10 May 2020 commemorating the end of World War II in Europe.

The Parish Council is arranging a 1940s themed, family oriented, community event

It will be held on the Village Green on Saturday, 9 May 2020 from 1.00 pm to 5.00 pm. It is hoped that many village organisations will take part.

More information on the proposed event will be added to this page as plans for the event are developed.

Next Meeting: Chapel Schoolroom at 7pm on Wednesday 11 March

Anyone interested in helping with planning and organising the event is welcome and is invited to attend.

Local groups or organsiations interested in taking part on Saturday 9 May 2020 which were unable to attend previous meetings are invited to send representative(s).

Progress Update: 21 February 2020

The Parish Council held a well attended meeting in the Chapel Schoolroom at 7pm on 27 November to start planning for the event. Representatives from the Parish Council and eight other community groups attended. A follow-up meeting was held on 15 January at which the overall theme and broad outline of the event structure was agreed. Posters publicising the time and date have been published on Noticeboards and distributed to key locations. The most recent meeting on 12 February has started more detailed planning for the event.
