“Communities around the country had events planned for VE Day which have now been cancelled, including Chichester Cathedral.
“We are delighted to offer this online service for those at home, as well as to be encouraging people to take part in the Big Picnic For Hope, as a way of remembering the heroes of the past and present.”
