Commemorating VJ Day

To mark VJ Day on Saturday 15th August, we celebrated by sharing stories, watched the ceremonies on TV and listened as our veterans spoke about their experiences and memories of the wartime years.

This topic is always very emotive and we encourage our residents to speak about their memories, particularly on occasions such as VJ Day which can evoke very powerful feelings. We were honoured to listen to one of our residents who was in Japan during the war as he proudly shared his stories from this time with us.
