Thames Ditton Flying the Flag for VE Day

Thames Ditton RA Councillor, Tricia W. Bland, through her work with the Thames Ditton High Street Retailers’ Association and Thames Ditton Foundation, organised the magnificent display of Union Flags for VE Day on Friday 8th May.

The flags which line the shops, cafes, restaurants, businesses and residences in our High Street, mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two in Europe, 8th May, 1945 and also celebrate the fact that, despite the challenges of COVID-19, our High Street remains open for business, dedicated to serving our community.

Tricia would like to express her thanks to her special team who made it possible – Will Bland for assembly and repairs plus Brian and Martin Poulter and Brad Duddy for erecting the flags and taking them down - no mean feat in this age of lockdown!
