Huntingdon Remembers: VJ Day 2020

Huntingdon Remembers. For today’s 75th Anniversary of VJ Day, the official last day of the Second World War, the nation paid tribute to all those lives lost and those who fought for our freedom. At 1100 a two minutes’ silence was observed throughout the country.

A short service of Remembrance took place at Huntingdon’s War Memorial. Sadly, we were unable to advertise this as we would not have been able to hold the service if the Market Square became too crowded. So, representatives from the Armed Forces and associations, the Lord Lieutenants Office, members of the County, District and Town councils and neighbouring towns joined the Mayor of Huntingdon, Cllr Steve McAdam, for the Act of Remembrance.
