Celebrate VE Day

Celebrate VE Day with a bit of Wartime Baking
Friday 8th May 2020

Bradford Libraries would like to invite all our library users, families and staff to have a go at baking a wartime recipe or a simple recipe typical of the time to celebrate VE Day 75. We’d love you to share the results by sending photos of your cakes, biscuits or pies along with bunting, tablecloths, recipes, flags and more to show off your baking achievements.

Please share your photos on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/bradfordlibraries

We will also put your photos on this page.

For the kids there are some associated text and activity sheets to accompany the story.  Check under the History section:
