The Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, Councillor Darryn Causby is inviting everyone to the lighting of a Beacon marking the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day.

The beacon lighting takes place on Friday, May 8, at Craigavon Lakes.

A bugler will call the crowd to attention with the Lord Mayor performing the honour at 9.30pm.

Mr Causby commented “This VE Day is really a celebration of peace and is a time to remember and pay tribute to all of those who played their part in World War II where so many lost their lives.

“I have invited representatives from each of the Royal British Legion Branches across our new borough along with a number of veterans to this event, however, if any member of the public wants to see the beacon being lit please park at the Craigavon Watersports Centre to walk round the side of the lake to the beacon site”.
