Local children get creative to commemorate VE Day Anniversary

Youngsters across Halesowen and Rowley Regis were busy last week drawing, colouring, gluing and sticking as they answered a local MP's call to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.

Halesowen and Rowley Regis MP, James Morris, asked young people in his constituency to create a picture to commemorate the occasion. There were drawings of Union Jacks and WW2 soldiers sent in and some children even took to make their own bunting.

James displayed as many of the submissions as possible on his Facebook page throughout the Bank Holiday last Friday. Mr Morris said:

"I was really pleased by the number of youngsters that got involved and the standard of the drawings sent into me was really high. It looks like we have some budding artists in Halesowen and Rowley Regis.

“It is very important that the history and the lessons of both World Wars are passed down to each new generation, and I hope that these children were able to get an insight into that as they had fun working on their drawings.”
