VE Day in Rutland in Photos | #VEDayInRutland

On 8th May 2020, during life in lockdown, Rutland's community came out in force and displayed social distancing celebrations of perfection. I asked the readers of the blog to send in their photos and videos using #VEDayinRutland and that's exactly what you did - thank you so much!
