With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, BBC Radio Oxford have come up with a way for people across Oxfordshire to mark the occasion, express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of WW2.
From Monday 27th April, BBC Radio Oxford has been asking people to get creative and make their own special ‘Great British Bunting’ to hang in their windows. Bunting can be decorated with pictures of soldiers who fought on the frontline or those who worked on the Homefront. It might be your grandad in the Navy or great grandmother working for the RAF. You could draw a poppy to commemorate the fallen or a dove to celebrate lasting peace.
All the guidance and inspiration you need to make your bunting from whatever you have at home can be found at bbc.co.uk/makeadifference, but we also have a bunting template and instructions below.
Keep an eye on the BBC Radio Oxford Twitter and Facebook pages – they will be sharing some lovely videos about the bunting starting on Monday.
