Residents and staff at Anchor’s Stanley Holloway Court in Canning Town marked the 70th anniversary of VE Day this week.

The occasion was marked with an indoor street party at the retirement housing scheme in London where spam sandwiches and wine gums were on offer, recreating the foods available at the time, as remembered by tenant Catherine Miller, 88, who was 18 when VE Day came.

Location Manager Jayne Lewis said it was important to mark the occasion: “In the next 10 years, how many people are going to remember this day in the same way.”
