Cromford residents celebrate Victory in Europe Day, generally known as VE Day, by holding a street party.

VE Day or simply V Day, is celebrated on May 8, 1945 to mark the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces. Photo is courtesy of Janet Kirk.
